Our friends at Beijing Today will be swinging by every now and then to introduce art and culture around the city. This week's focus is on 798's Galleria Continua Beijing, which currently is featuring a solo exhibition by Qiu Zhijie.
Tino Sehgal is a pretty big deal. And undoubtedly, 2013 has been his best year yet. In June, he was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale – for an artist, this is comparable to an Oscar or an Olympic gold medal. Earlier in the spring, he was one of four artists shortlisted for Tate Britain’s prestigious Turner Prize. At 37 years old, he's amassed an impressive resume of institutions where he's exhibited, including a solo show in New York’s Guggenheim Museum in which the main spiral of the building's interior was emptied out for one of his tightly choreographed “constructed situations.”
This week marks the return of Laowai Comics! (Here was our intrepid artist's most recent work). His newest piece will appear on Monday on his site, and he'll resume his Thursday postings here next week. Until then, check out the full archives.
Laowai Comics is a biweekly webcomic. Our intrepid artist is taking a leave of absence for the summer months, but will return in the fall. Until then, perhaps you'd like to check out the full archives.
