PAST EVENTS AND CURATED SHOWS

May 11-17, 2015 “GAN YISHU CHINESE YOUNG ARTISTS: corruptionist, abstractionists, eroticists, dreamers and escapists” Espace Cinko, Paris, France

干艺术 (gan yishu) or “doing art” is a new expression in China, currently employed among 
artists. The verb gan sounds like “gan huo” meaning to work as a labourer, a factory 
worker, to work to make a living. But gan is a homonym for “feeling”, or sensuality or put 
more bluntly “doing it”. This makes « gan yishu » China’s newest private joke. 
To “do art” is way of being, transgressing boundaries because one is and one is more than 
that“an artist” and in that sense, a revolutionary.
