Comerchina: Huang Rui Solo Show

Comerchina: Huang Rui Solo Show at Chinese Contemporary’s Beijing gallery in Factory 798. "...For the exhibition, the artist has created 27 silk-screened canvases which placed together resemble a massive, five and a half meter Renminbi note. By referring to currency, Huang Rui calls into question the Chinese contemporary art market. When collectively mounted on a wall, the set of canvases are publicly raised to the level of high art. When broken apart, however, the works revert to their original form – objects to be bartered and sold, a form of artistic currency in itself."
