PastForward opening

You are Cordially invited to PastForward, an exhibition that
re-examines historical consciousness through a group of artists whose
own lives have paralleled the tumultuous and dynamic history of modern
China. Zhang Dali, Ren Hong, Liu Xinhua/Wang Lang, Sheng Qi and Zhang
Nian all grew up during the Cultural Revolution and came of age during
China's early years of economic reform. The group, all friends since
the mid-eighties, use distinctly diverse methods to explore the
representation of social reality throughout history. From fiberglass
casts of migrant workers to oil painting and photo archiving, from the
Cultural Revolution to Tiananmen and beyond, this exhibition shows us
that the past is still forever in front of us.
