This new title examines Zhao Zhao’s working practice, emblematic for art’s ability to address conflict—social, political, and aesthetic—in a world undergoing unprecedented upheaval. The artist has consistently positioned his art as a counterweight to systems of control that affect and regulate the lives of individuals in China; while his work’s increasingly global reach testifies to its profound resonance beyond his country’s borders. His deft use of a wide range of materials, combined with a tonal elusiveness that veers between the faintly ludic, the sardonic, and the unambiguously confrontational, justify his position as a crucial agent in contemporary cultural discourse.
