#tbt Back in 1993, Xu Bing shared a basement with #aiweiwei in lower east side New York. One day when they were wandering on the streets, Xu Bing saw these abandoned abstract paintings at the corner of Fifth Street ("Wu Jie" 五街/误街/悟街). He thought these were not that different from what he saw in galleries and museums. He stopped Weiwei and they decided to make a collaborative project that later evolved into #wustreet. On view at @guggenheim until January 7, 2018. #oldgang #xubing #xubingart #conceptualart #chinesecontemporaryart #contemporaryart #collaboration #behindtheart #TheateroftheWorld
#xubing at @guggenheim pt.1: Wu Street (1993-94). Together with #aiweiwei, Xu Bing created and promoted an identity of an "American abstract painter Jason Jones" based on a group of abstract paintings they found in garbage in lower east side, New York. They paired the paintings with an existing text by art critic Melissa Feldman, had the article translated and published on an art journal in China. For Xu Bing, the multiple layers of displacement and misunderstanding tell the truth of cross-cultural communication, especially the one between Chinese and Western contemporary art scenes at that time. On view until January 7th, 2018. 📷: Zeheng Hong #xubingart #wustreet #conceptualart #contemporaryart #chinesecontemporaryart #TheateroftheWorld #authorship #artcritic #inyourface #behindtheart

Serendipitous art encounter- “Monkeys grasp for the moon” #xubing
As there is nothing from the first,Where Does the Dust Itself Collect? 本来无一物,何处惹尘埃? Dust collected after 9-11 near Ground Zero 藝術有時候會很無力 像徐冰自己評價過 但無力是一種多難得難忘讓人難以平復的表達 #徐冰 #xubing #guggenheimmuseum #chineseart #comtemporyart
