This first solo exhibition by artist Liu Gang presents selections from his new photographic series, Paper Dream (2008). Using images appropriated from newspaper advertisements for upscale housing developments in Beijing, the artist creates works of sheer excess and absurdity, but also comments on new forms of identity in China. The show is part of an ongoing exhibition series reflecting collaboration between the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) and Lan Club that features the best emerging artists of Beijing. “As a witness of contemporary life in Beijing and its fast moving developments, Liu Gang: Merlin, Champagne & Regalia is the perfect fit for UCCALAN(D), whose ambition is to stand at the heart of urban creativity,” says UCCA' Director Jerome Sans.
