Yang Fudong

Born in Shanghai, China, 1971 and lives in Shanghai, China

Yang Fudong was born in Beijing, 1971 and graduated from the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, 1995. Yang is one of China’s best known contemporary artists, having gained a major international reputation for his films and video installations, which have been shown regularly as part of major international survey exhibitions and one-person gallery shows across the globe. Yang Fudong has had more than 60 solo shows at most acclaimed institutions and galleries during the past years besides other 300 group exhibitions in the world. Yang Fudong’s artworks articulate multiple perspectives; his works investigate the structure and formation of identity through myth, personal memory and lived experience. Each of his works is a dramatic existential experience and a challenge to take on.
