The exhibit presents a range of media and technique: painting, calligraphy, sculpture, bronze, ceramics, jade, glass, textiles, furniture, snuff bottles and jewelry. It draws on the rich permanent collection of the museum and juxtaposes it with works by seven contemporary artists working in a continuous line with the Chinese tradition.

China Diary No.51

Zhu Wei is one of the contemporary artists. His works CHINA DIARY was created in 2001. In this works, Zhu Wei reconfigures the image of oxen portrayed in Han Huang (Tang Dynasty)'s famous Five Oxen painting. Although he employs similar color, form and use of seals, he paints the oxen larger than life, underscoring their importance as cultural icons. He utilizes the ancient fine line technique in his twenty-first century art works, and in the exhibition this works goes well with the works by Chinese ancient master Bada Shanren and Gao Qipei. 

This show affords the Art Complex Museum an opportunity to share the quality and variety of its holdings and present new interpretations of the Chinese nation's artistic heritage. An opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, October 15, 1:30 until 3:30 pm.

评论家的抉择:中国 

2006年9月24日到2007年1月14日,在美国马萨诸塞州Art Complex博物馆举办的《评论家的抉择:中国》展将展出一系列从商代到当代的杰出艺术品。此次展览涵盖绘画、书法、雕塑、铜制品、瓷器、玉器、玻璃制品、纺织品、家具、鼻烟壶和珠宝,除博物馆的永久馆藏精品外,还包括朱伟等七位与中国传统一脉相承的当代艺术家的作品。 

朱伟的作品“中国日记”(2001)重新诠释了唐代画家韩?著名的“五牛图”。尽管他采用了相似的颜色、造型和印章,然而他的作品尺度要比原作中大很多,强调了对象作为文化符号的重要性。朱伟将美轮美奂的传统线条技法融合到他二十一世纪的艺术作品当中,与同时展出的八大山人、高其佩等中国古代绘画大师的作品相得益彰。 

此次展览给了Art Complex博物馆一个机会来与大家分享它精深广博的藏品以及对中国艺术传统的当代诠释。开幕酒会将在1015日星期天下午130330举行。

Zhu Wei: New Pictures of the Strikingly Bizarre in Singapore and Hong Kong     2005

With the exploding global interest in Asian art everyone wants to know which artists will stand the test of time. Amongst them, one man, Zhu Wei stands tall. Though only 39 years old, this quiet and self-sufficient artist is producing some of the most exciting and dynamic work in Asia.

This brand new series of handmade prints, created by Zhu Wei at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute in 2004, demonstrates why Zhu Wei has the international art world’s attention.

Already a prolific and highly talented printmaker, at STPI Zhu Wei was able to push his boundaries even further, creating very large woodblocks which suit the imposing scale and expansive nature of his art - the largest woodcut being a 6 panel piece over 4m wide. With his distinctive, monumental figures and satirical political commentary, this new body of work has a sharpness, wit and confidence which is both arresting and thought provoking.

Seen as representative of the maturing of China’s modern art, Zhu Wei’s work is in much demand. Following the show in Singapore by STPI and in Hong Kong by Plum Blossoms Gallery, the print series will be exhibited in New York, USA at the end of this year.

Zhu Wei, and Fang Lijun. Focusing on works on paper, oils and sculpture, this exhibition supplements the major exhibition of video and photography, “Between Past and Future”, currently ongoing at the Asia Society and the International Center of Photography. It reveals the range of major Chinese artists working in multiple media, such as Hong Hao, Song Dong, and Zhan Wang, as different and complementary works in both exhibitions reveal their development and distinctiveness as artists.
