Gu Xiong: Migrations, an exhibition of 45 years of Gu’s work, was organized as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary. The exhibition was scheduled to run for two months in the summer of 2017, at the Galaxy Museum of Contemporary Art in Chongqing, China—Gu’s home town. The artwork filled 10,000 square feet of exhibition space across two floors. After a month’s preparation (with the help of over a hundred volunteers and the gallery staff), however, the it was shut down before it could open. It was taken down over the following two days, during which time the gallery’s doors remained open, allowing visitors to watch the work slowly disappear.
