In­ex­pli­ca­ble

In­ex­pli­ca­ble is a group ex­hi­bi­tion of 18 Chi­nese young artists, re­volv­ing around the imag­i­na­tive and in­cred­i­ble cre­ations from the artists’ minds. With a boom­ing and fast-mov­ing pop cul­ture in China, young artists are con­stantly ex­posed to all kinds of in­spi­ra­tion, rang­ing from so­cial me­dia, fic­tion and movies, mag­a­zines, and daily life in a glob­al­ized con­text. This ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores Chi­nese tra­di­tions and mod­ern­iza­tion, fan­tasy and sci­ence fic­tion, as well as lit­er­ary nar­ra­tive and so­cial re­al­ism. The ti­tle In­ex­pli­ca­ble refers to an ex­pe­ri­ence that is in­de­scrib­able and in­con­ceiv­able to the be­holder. The show aims to in­tro­duce au­di­ences to multi-faceted styles of art forms that are made by mil­len­ni­als, whose works mir­ror the so­ci­ety in which they dwell.

QIN YIFENG’S WORKS

Yuz Mu­seum is set to open Qin Yifeng’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion, QIN YIFENG’S WORKS. This is the first ex­hi­bi­tion of a set of film neg­a­tives by Qin that has al­ready drawn wide­spread at­ten­tion in the art world. Qin Yifeng (born in 1961) is an es­tab­lished artist based in Shang­hai who has en­gaged him­self in the cre­ation of art for more than 30 years. He learned cal­lig­ra­phy in child­hood, the spir­i­tual cul­ti­va­tion and for­mal aes­thet­ics of which deeply in­flu­enced his artis­tic cre­ation. In 1992, Qin es­tab­lished a new paint­ing style called xi­an­chang (field of lines). In the early stage of xi­an­chang, the cube, con­structed by lines, is cre­ated as a vis­ual sub­ject to ex­plore the com­po­si­tion of lines and planes, the re­la­tion­ship be­tween two and three di­men­sions, as well as over­lap­ping and twist­ing of space. The artist aban­doned the cube and grad­u­ally de­vel­oped a style of pure­ness. His use of color has be­come more solemn and tran­quil, cre­at­ing dif­fer­ent vari­a­tions of for­mal aes­thet­ics, spa­tial re­la­tion­ships, vir­tual-real vi­sions and mood at­mos­pheres in a sim­ple com­po­si­tion. Qin is also a col­lec­tor and re­searcher of Ming Dy­nasty (1368–1644)wooden fur­ni­ture, out of which he makes unique pho­to­graphic works. This work will be on dis­play at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Sissy and Hun­gary: The Mag­nif­i­cent Life of Hun­gar­ian Aris­toc­racy in the 17th to 19th Cen­tury

Dur­ing the 17th to 19th cen­tury, Hun­gary was gov­erned by the House of Hab­s­burg, which was one of the most in­flu­en­tial royal houses of Europe. Dur­ing the reign of Franz Joseph I (1830–1916), the rul­ing ter­ri­tory un­der­went a change from the Aus­trian Em­pire to the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­ian Em­pire. The awak­en­ing of the Hun­gar­ian na­tional con­scious­ness to­gether with the Hun­gar­ian in­de­pen­dence move­ment shook the regime of the na­tion. Hun­gary and the Hab­s­burg Monar­chy were in a hos­tile sit­u­a­tion. For­tu­nately, Queen El­iz­a­beth (Princess Sissy), the wife of Franz Joseph I, eased the ten­sion. The queen set her af­fec­tions on Hun­gary prob­a­bly be­cause she was wel­comed and com­fort­able when she stayed in Hun­gary. She tried her best to strive for the rights and in­ter­ests for Hun­gar­ian peo­ple. With this ex­hi­bi­tion, you can both ex­pe­ri­ence the life­style of Hun­gary in the 17th to 19th cen­tury and see the glo­ri­ous ap­pear­ance of the Queen El­iz­a­beth in past time. This spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion presents vis­i­tors with 149 pieces/ sets ex­hibits from the col­lec­tion of the Hun­gar­ian Na­tional Mu­seum, Bu­dapest. There are five parts in this ex­hi­bi­tion, in­clud­ing a brief in­tro­duc­tion of the Hab­s­burg Monar­chy and Hun­gary, the cloth­ing, the lives, the weapons and the re­li­gion of the Hun­gar­ian royal fam­ily and no­bil­ity, show­ing the mag­nif­i­cent life of Hun­gar­ian aris­toc­racy in the 17th to 19th cen­tury. In the first part of the ex­hi­bi­tion there is a spe­cial theme about Queen El­iz­a­beth, show­ing the leg­endary and re­gret­table life of the queen.
