Performance and Q & A w/ Miao Jiaxin

*Mediated by Aimee Lin- Editorial director for ArtReview Asia

Currently based in New York, Miao Jiaxin began his career as a street photographer tracking Shanghai prostitutes, and has gone on to develop a pseudo-transvestite web celebrity, via works which are influenced by existentialism, but are also politically engaged with current events. For him an artist is someone who transgresses boundaries, challenges consensus and keeps his distance from the authorities.

Established in 2008 by nine young artists who had recently graduated from the New Media Department of China Academy of Art (Hangzhou), the Double Fly Art Center likes to think of itself as China’s most famous artist collective. Its members are: Lin Ke, Yang Junling (Beijing), Zhang Lehua (Shanghai), Cui Shaohan, Li Ming, Huang Liya (Hangzhou), Li Fuchun (Shanghai & Yiwu), Sun Huiyuan (Shenzhen) and Wang Liang (Handan, Hebei). Sex and sexuality are recurring themes within their wide-ranging creative practice, which includes drawing, painting, videogames, photography, video, animation, performance and installation.

Rafel Rozendaal’s ‘Everything You See Is in the Past’ on until 18th of January @Postmasters Gallery in NYC

The Dutch- Brazilian artist Rafaël Rozendaal will present several of his websites as largescale projections and a group of unique lenticular paintings which he began in 2012. “Art can’t be defined. Try it. It can’t be done. We all kind of know what it is but no one really knows. Noone really knows what happiness is either. The moment you know it, you’re not really happy. When you’re really happy, you’re not thinking about happiness.”- Rafel Rozendall
