Installations, sculptures and paintings by ten of China’s leading artists.

Jing Kewen – Xiang Jing – Li Songsong – Ai Weiwei – Xu Bing - Liu Jianhua – Song Dong – Yin Xiuzhen – Mao Tongqiang - Yue Minjun

Over the last 15 years, Chinese contemporary artists have gained phenomenal popularity and recognition in the international art world. Real Life Stories presents, for the first time in Norway, installations, sculptures and paintings by ten of China’s leading artists.

Like an exhibition within an exhibition, the occasion marks the world premiere of a new work by Ai Weiwei. In 2011, ArtReview magazine deemed this artist to be the most powerful figure in the art world, and one of the trendsetters for the international contemporary art scene. Ai Weiwei’s art often deals with themes pertaining to Chinese culture, tradition and craftsmanship, and China’s relationship to the West.

Chief curators: Feng Boyi and Bjørn Inge Follevaag. Co-curators: Erlend Høyersten and Eli Okkenhaug.

The exhibition is produced by Art Museums of Bergen.
