The Crossroads of the World: Construing Visual Meanings in Contemporary Art

International Contemporary Art Exhibition at MoCA Beijing

On the afternoon of May 11, 2019, the International Art Exhibition ´´ The Crossroads of the World: Construing Visual Meanings in Contemporary Art´´ co-organized by the Beijing Museum of Contemporary Art and the Hamburg Pashmin Art Consortia opened at the Beijing Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition took seven months to showcase the works of 28 international artists. The works cover sculpture and photography and a variety of media such as painting and composite materials.

The fascinating references of the artworks are elusive and the apparent appeal of their surfaces, diverse techniques, three-dimensionality, etc. arouse our reflection. The reward is enriching our understanding of how visual meanings can be construed from different markers, images and associations, from poetics of art, in general. They try to get into our unconscious and play a major role in the production of visual meanings, as well as in our spiritual life.


A special section at the international contemporary art group exhibition (Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty) is devoted to the sculptures and watercolors of the artist Prof. Dr. Wang Shaojun from Beijing. Currently he serves as Professor of China Central Academy of Fine Arts (China´s most prestigious and renowned art university), Master Instructor, Tutor for the Sixth Studio, School of Sculpture, Deputy Secretary of CAFA Party Committee, Member of the Art Committee of National Urban Sculpture, Evaluation Expert for Collections of the National Art Museum of China, Managing Director of China Sculpture Academy, Member of the Sculpture Art Committee, Beijing Artists´ Association. He has won numerous awards and his works are kept in many prominent museums and China and elsewhere.

Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty

Art is ´´generally´´ considered to be beautiful and ´´usually´´ that is why people are attracted to it. However, there is another side of art which tells the truth. Here it cannot necessarily be beautiful, it might be critical, sarcastic, satiric, paradoxical, even ugly. Yet, truth, by itself, has a sense of beauty. In this International Contemporary Art Exhibition, we try to show the beautiful side of truth and truthful side of beauty.

Squek Carnwath - What befor Came After

New York, October 12, 2015 – Jane Lombard Gallery presents What Before Came After, Squeak Carnwath´s first solo exhibition in New York City in over a decade. The exhibition features a selection of Carnwath´s paintings and cigar-box sculptures spanning 25 years of practice. Active in the Bay Area since the 1970s, alongside artists such as Viola Frey and Jay DeFeo, Carnwath has developed a signature style that incorporates meticulously applied layers of oil paint with text, repeated symbolic iconography, and abstract patterns to create complex works which gradually reveal her personal exploration of representation, memory, and the human experience. The artist will be present for the opening reception on October 22 from 6-8 pm.

Man and his Symbols, A Move to Coherence

The exhibition ´´Man and his Symbols, A Move to Coherence´´ exhibits the works of four artists from four countries, Nille Bech (Denmark), Birdy Tg (France), Nick Coley (England), and Eva-Lena Martinson (Sweden)

Man and his Symbols, A Move to Coherence The title of this exhibition is taken from Carl Gustav Jung´s influential book Man and his Symbols. From the moment we are born we are overwhelmed by signs and symbols and they influence us directly and indirectly. Usually a sign is specific for one purpose while it can have other associations as well but a symbol is simultaneously itself and something else. It is quite wide-ranging and has different meanings in different societies. Each symbol is a key to understand the world.

Fantasy: Natural and Supernatural

As the etymology of the term “fantasy” shows, it is closely related to imagination, vision and illusory appearance. It is related to our perception of the world, realistic or non-realistic, around us. It might be a distorted copy of the real world or a fantastic replica of our dreams. In a broad sense a large body of artistic creation of humanity in art, literature, music and film, etc. is fantastical. In fact, we cannot live without fantasy.

In medieval period much of the depictions and descriptions of Hell and Heaven were fantastical. In Renaissance and early modern world, new layers are added. The emergence of science broadens the scope. New genres emerge and merge.
