Grants Awarded2015 | Visual Art | United States
for a six-month grant to observe contemporary art activities, meet other artists, and participate in an artist residency program in the U.S.
NO MAN'S LAND is a major exhibition featuring 37 contemporary women artists from 16 countries exploring images of the female body and the physical process of making those images.
This exhibition is a major symbolic event representative of the emergent Chinese avant-garde artists who influence the art scene in China today. This generation of artists no longer relies on the political history background and they have become the players of a larger scene, global in every sense. It shows an understanding of Chinese art as a vital and outstanding way of dealing with political, social and aesthetic issues. Curated by Ami Barak. Out of the 18 artists exhibiting, 4 are ACC grantees.
The exhibition includes Li Shurui's latest project Deep White, a new series of Wave painting-installations, as well as a new development of the Mindfile Storage Unit series of painting-installations. In recent years, Li has further developed her methodology; her configuring of color systems and layering of multiple trajectories of color now have the distinctive effect of creating chord sequences. On the other hand, Wave and Mindfile Storage Unit are the result of the artist’s continued interest in the formal aspect of religious architecture. With waves and spheric forms, Li depicts the amorphousness of consciousness to bring about resonance in and immerse the viewer.
Li Shurui received an ACC fellowship in 2015 for a residency program in New York.
