Published by Blue Kingfisher/Galerie Urs Meile. Essay by Nataline Colonnello. Conversation with Ai Weiwei.
Although Xie Nanxing is one of the most important young contemporary painters working in China, his CV doesn't list a single American show. This catalog of his first dozen years brings U.S. readers his chilling stigmata, blood-dotted scenes, and gray fish-eye interiors, all of which have the look of surveillance imagery. Works included here have appeared at the Shanghai and Venice Biennales and the Kunsthalle Basel among other venues.
