“Forget Art” (Dragon Fountain Bathhouse,Beijing)


A show where no works were labeled and most blended right  into the context of its non-art site,this exhibition,curated by Ma Yongfeng, is only one example of a younger circle operating apart from previous models of contemporary Chinese art.Though mixing art and the everyday is nothing new in Europe and America,it’s an interesting orientation for us during this post-hype chill, given China’s recent market bubble and its preference for work in which Chinese symbols are tactically applied to critique abroad social themes-and it is perhaps exactly what’s needed for strategizing future battles. As the name of Ma’s scene suggests(and I’m not the first to note),maybe the best strategy in China right now “for getting” art is just to “forget” it.

许正需要这样的平静时刻才可以让中国当代艺术思考如何挑战未来的下一战。如timeout beijing的一篇展评写到:

“你可以理解为他们要做的是For Get Art,也可以是Forget Art。”
