2021 Long Museum (West Bund) Main Exhibition Lineup
Date :  2021.4.13
We are pleased to kickstart 2021 with artist Yin Zhaoyang's solo exhibition "A Vast History" which has been successfully held in the main exhibition hall of Long Museum (West Bund). For the rest of this year, we will continue to bring more outstanding exhibitions for you! The solo exhibitions of He Duoling, Mary Corse, George Condo and Chiharu Shiota will be launched in the main hall.
He Duoling: Grass and Color
Duration: 2021.4.25 — 2021.6.20

The exhibition, curated by Zhu Zhu, is a collection of more than 70 pieces from He Duoling’s oeuvre, ranging from the 1980s to the present day alongside various related documents in an attempt to showcase the artist’s unique philosophy and constant evolution. Images of grass have long been present throughout He’s creations over the past forty years and serve as a clue for the viewer to understand the rich and abundant colors among his paintings. 
Born in 1948 in Chengdu, He Duoling is one of the most celebrated oil painters in contemporary Chinese art. He enrolled in the oil painting department of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 1977. After graduating, He remained at the university for a master’s degree in oil painting. He graduated in 1982 and began working as a professional painter for the Chengdu Art Academy. In 1985, He visited the United States to speak at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Mary Corse: Painting with Light 
Duration: 2021.7.3 — 2021.9.5

In summer 2021, Long Museum will host the American artist’s debut museum exhibition in China. Comprised of over 30 pivotal works spanning a half century of the artist’s practice, this major survey includes paintings, installations, ceramic sculptures and work on paper that embody Corse’s continuous exploration of properties of light and ideas of abstraction. This solo museum show follows the lauded traveling retrospective by the artist staged at the Whitney Museum of American Art (2018) and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2019) and complements Dia Beacon’s Long-term exhibition of her artwork from the 1960-1970’s.  

Mary Corse (b. 1945, Berkeley, California) investigates materiality, abstraction, and perception through the subtly gestural and precisely geometric paintings that she has made over her sixty-year career.

George Condo: The Picture Gallery 
Duration: Late September — Late November 2021

The Picture Gallery is the largest solo exhibition by George Condo in Asia. Curated by Massimiliano Gioni, the show will bring together more than 90 paintings made throughout the artist’s career and will debut a new series of large-scale canvases made specifically for this presentation. The exhibition focuses on some of the most important cycles and bodies of works that have defined Condo’s art since the late 1970s, when the artist was among the first to herald a critical return to painting after decades of conceptual art practices.  As suggested by its title – borrowed from a 2002 painting – the exhibition is conceived as a gallery of imaginary portraits: a salon of fictional ancestors and fallen members of an imagined aristocracy hung in the cavernous galleries of Long Museum (West Bund) as in the halls of a decaying futurist castle.

Condo was born in New Hampshire in 1957.  For more than four decades, Condo’s stunning virtuosity and ability to devour and ventriloquize any historical painting style has resulted in a prodigious output. In his vast oeuvre, “fake old masters paintings,” as the artist describes them, coexist with his maddening explorations of the human psyche, while figuration and abstraction are woven into tapestries of signs and symbols that find inspiration in the work of experimental writers and musicians.

From December 2021 to March 2022, artist Chiharu Shiota will hold her solo exhibition at Long Museum (West Bund). Please stay tuned and follow our official account (long-museum).
