Gu Xiong: Towards the Rivers

A4 Art Museum has followed and promoted the development of diverse histories and artistic experiments in contemporary art and culture in Southwestern China. The museum presented a series of solo exhibitions as artist case studies, my art practice cross cultures as a case study of “Personal Position in the Process of Globalization,” cashed up attention from the museum.

This catalogue was from my solo exhibition Gu Xiong: Towards the Rivers, a multimedia large solo exhibition at A4 Art Museum, Chengdu, China (from Dec. 19, 2020 – March 7, 2021). This show was focused on topics such as “Immigration and Identity,” including 5 installations, 3 videos, 6 large paintings, 60 photos and 2000 paper boats, 200 plaster salmon fishes and 10 poems on the gallery wall. My solo show was part of the A4 Art Museum Southwest Art Ecological Research Series on artists and exhibitions.
