Fang Lijun: This All Too Human World
Why We Recommend it
This All Too Human World is a solo exhibition of recent paintings and prints by Beijing-based artist Fang Lijun, a leading figure in the early 90s cynical realist movement.
Fang Lijun here turns his razor-sharp critical eye and unflinchingly honest gaze to the anxiety and pain felt by those living in the midst of a transforming society, shaped by rapid and critical change.
He seeks to understand and analyse China’s social transformation through a new lens, creating visual pictures that at once reflect and predict the types of ideological change engendered by this transformation.
