Curated by Danilo Eccher
The GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino opens its summer programme offering its exhibition space for the first great solo exhibition in Italy of Chinese artist Fang Lijun (b. 1963; Handan, China; lives and works in Beijing).
An acclaimed artist in his country, Fang Lijun was one of the main exponents of Cynical Realism, a movement which developed in China in the 1990s focusing on the analysis of Chinese socio-political history in the 20th century, with a particular reference to the Cultural Revolution, up to the current economic boom, dealt with sharp and uncanny humour and irony.
