Hu Weiqi

Entangled in Duality

The fastest, the highest, the strongest are the superlatives that came to describe the pace of development in modern China since the opening reforms. The speed at which this huge and ancient nation is changing is not only rare in any other country, but it is unprecedented in China itself. It is against this general backdrop that lives of the current generations are unfolding. With the solo exhibition “Entangled in Duality”, Hu Weiqi makes an attempt to unveil how deep of an imprint this miraculous, eye-catching and lighting-fast social, political and cultural transition has left on the mentalities, conscious and believes of Chinese people. 

When: June 9th – July 30th  /  10am – 7pm (June 9th opens at 6pm)

Where: 191 South Suzhou Road (near Middle Sichuan Road)

As Above So Berom
