The Shed - - News -

A three-room ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing three video in­stal­la­tions of Shang­hai-based artist Yang Fudong is open un­til Jan­uary 25, 2016 at the Auck­land Art Gallery Toi o Ta­maki.

The three works — The Fifth Night (2010), Ye­jiang / The Night­man Cometh (2011), and The Coloured Sky: New Women II (2014) — that make up the ex­hi­bi­tion, Yang Fudong: Film­scapes, have been com­mis­sioned by Auck­land Art Gallery and the Aus­tralian Cen­tre for the Mov­ing Im­age and cu­rated by Ulanda Blair to make their first-ever ap­pear­ance in Aus­trala­sia.

Fudong’s fo­cus is on look­ing at China through the eyes of young ur­ban in­tel­lec­tu­als who are ex­plor­ing and dis­cov­er­ing their place in the mod­ern world, and he uses 35mm film and dig­i­tal video to cre­ate his con­tem­po­rary works.
