赵刚 ZHAO Gang

赵刚,1961年出生于北京,现工作和生活于北京和纽约。年仅18岁时参加星星画会——此团体是最早的前卫艺术家群体,为中国当代艺术的发展铺设了重要基石。此后,他留学于欧洲和纽约,曾就读于荷兰Maastricht国家艺术学院、美国纽约州Vassar学院、美国纽约州Bard学院,并于纽约生活、工作二十余年。在此期间,他逐步发展出鲜明的国际化特征,并创作出风格多元的作品。在2006年回到北京后,赵刚不断地把焦点投向了他的独特的个人经历与中国历史之间的纠缠——他既生于此地,却又是陌生的新晋移民。赵刚重要美术馆个展包括:“通往奴役之路 II”,圣地亚哥当代艺术博物馆,智利,2016;“偶园:赵刚个人作品展”,苏州博物馆,苏州,2015;“通往奴役之路”,尤伦斯当代艺术中心,北京,2015;“病夫”,今日美术馆,北京,2011。 重要群展包括:“门”,PS1艺术机构/Blum Helman画廊,纽约,1990。他曾参加2005年横滨三年展、2007年纽约表演艺术双年展、2008年广州三年展等重要双/三年展。

 

Zhao Gang (b. 1961, Beijing) currently lives and works in New York and Beijing. He made his artistic debut as a member of the Stars Group, one of the first avant-garde artist groups to open the era of contemporary art in China, when he was just 18 years old. Shortly thereafter he pursued formal art education in Europe and then New York, studying at the State Academy of Fine Art, Maastricht, Holland; Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, USA; MFA, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, USA. Afterwards, Zhao Gang lived overseas for over two decades, developing a diverse body of work as his perspective became distinctively international. Since returning to Beijing in 2006, Zhao Gang has turned his ever-expanding focus toward the entanglement of his personal past with Chinese history and his unique position, at once a native and a newcomer, in China today.

His selected museum solo exhibitions include: The Road to Serfdom II, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago, Chile, 2016; Paramour’s Garden, Suzhou Museum, Suzhou, China, 2015; The Road to Serfdom, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China, 2015; Sick Man: Zhao Gang, Today Art Museum, Beijing, China, 2011. His selected group exhibitions include: The Door, P.S.1 Institute of the Arts/Blum Helman Gallery, New York, USA, 1990. He has participated in important biennial/triennial exhibitions such as PERFORMA 07, the Guangzhou Triennial, and the Yokohama Triennial.
