Chen Wei always there Two large overview exhibitions of Chinese art in the USA
The Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida and the Tampa Art Museum in Tampa have organised two large-scale parallel exhibitions of contemporary art from China. Since 2001, the Rubells have been travelling to China to visit some studios and galleries. The result is “28 Chinese artists”, including such familiar names as Ai Weiwei, and also Chen Wei.
At almost the same time, China expert Barbara Pollack has been organising the exhibition ”My Generation: Young Chinese artists”. More than a hundred artists from different regions of China were interviewed on the subject, and of these, 27 artists made the final run-off. Along with Chen Wei, there are the artistic duo Birdhead and Cui Jie, also represented in the Sammlung Zimmermann.
