A + Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of artist Dai Chenlian’s solo exhibition “A Bright Moon Surging Upon Tide” on July 15 th , 2017. The exhibition is on view through September 3 rd .

With a degree in Oil Painting from China Academy of Art, Dai Chenlian shifted his focus to the creative practices of theatre after graduation. Through the representation of time, language and theatre’s innate quality, Dai queries and reconsiders questions revolving around the creative methods, motives of exhibiting, forms of artwork and so forth.

This exhibition is a new interpretation which follows the same train of thought as Dai Chenlian’s Family Theater Project . The exhibition is named after the famous poem “A Flowery Moonlit Night by the Spring River” by Zhang Ruoxu, a poet from the Tang Dynasty. The artist borrows from the imagery of the poetic verses to construct a space where various art forms, such as performance, painting, text, sound, video and installation interact with one another.
