This November, celebrated British artist Anish Kapoor will open a major solo exhibition in Beijing at the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Art Museum and Taimiao Art Museum of the Imperial Ancestral Temple, by the walls of the Forbidden City in Beijing. As Kapoor’s first solo museum show in China, the exhibition will present some of the artist’s most significant and celebrated works of his last thirty-five years – with powerful, self-generated installations at CAFA Art Museum and sensorial, geometrical sculptures at the Taimiao Art Museum of Imperial Ancestral Temple.
Anish Kapoor, artist, commented: "I am honoured to be making these two exhibitions in Beijing both in the context of CAFA and the temples of the Forbidden City. I have planned exhibitions that reach across my work of the last thirty-five years." Fan Di’an, President of China Artists Association and the Central Acedmy of Fine Arts, commented: "As one of the world’s most prolific and respected contemporary artists, Anish Kapoor is a perfect example of combining ancient and modern, eastern and western. His artwork is rooted in ancient Indianphilosophy and thought, fused with the spiritual core of Buddhism and Daoism from the East and artistic concepts and psychoanalysis from the West. In the contemporary transformation of ancient civilizations, he activates mysterious and powerful resonant forces. In Kapoor’s work, color is baptism and belief, space is intelligence and soul, and material is substance and spirit; through visual uncertainty, he constructs aboundary of the ethereal and great void, leading viewers into a dialogue that transcends nature and perception, and this dialogue is what Chinese audiences should truly contemplate and explore." Zhang Zikang, Director of CAFA Art Museum, and Chief Curator, commented: "Anish Kapoor is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist. His work is compelling and will radiate across these sites in Beijing, connecting well with Chinese audiences. Kapoor is an Indian born artist whose work resonates across continents and nationalities, it presents a language of sculpture that is beyond any specific cultural or ideological values. His unique works presented in this exhibition will open a rich dialogue with the Chinese audience. Just like the old Chinese saying, 'the other mountain’s stone can polish jade', I believe this exhibition will provide a profound example of how we could represent the rich traditional Chinese culture with contemporary art forms."

The 600-year-old Taimiao is composed of buildings and courtyards of large volume. By reflecting and refracting the space using a series of stainless steel and pigment sculptures, Kapoor is having an unprecedented dialogue with the magnificent architecture and the history. His most impactful, interactive pair of works, S-Curve (2006) and C-Curve (2007) will be placed in the mid-court of Taimiao. “S-Curve” is a S-shaped sculpture formed by two seamlessly connected stainless steels. “C-Curve” is one large piece of curved stainless steel. The two art works, respectively in convex and concave shapes, directly reflects and retracts landscape around them. Located around these works is another group of important stainless steel sculptures by Kapoor, including Non-Object (Spire) (2008), and Non-Object (Door) (2008). These works show its environment up-side-down, make the audience immerse in the surrounding architecture and environment, and challenge the audience’s conceptive experience.Anish Kapoor, Svayambhu, 2007Wax and oil-based paintDimensions variablePhoto credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019Pigment sculptures will be exhibited in the two side halls of Taimiao Art Museum’s Xiang Dian. Kapoor’s use of pigment is the foundation of many of his original works. He quickly rose to fame with the 1000 Names series (1979-1982) due to its innovative use of pigment. Other pigment sculptures that ensued, including the Angel (1990) in blue and the To Reflect an Intimate Part of the Red (1981) in a variety of colors and shapes, will appear in this exhibition. The varied art works will fill the ancient architecture space. All kinds of shapes will put the audience in a daze.Leviathan, 2011PVC33.6 x 99.89 x 72.23 mExhibited at Grand Palais during the Monumenta, 2011Photo credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019The exhibition is co-organized by Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Beijing Municipal Federation Trade Unions, and co-hosted by the CAFA Art Museum and the Taimiao Art Museum.

Originally called the Central Academy of Fine Arts Gallery, it was located on Wangfujing, Beijing. Designed by the noted architect Zhang Kaiji, the Gallery was the first professional art museum built after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China. In 1998, the Gallery changed its name to the CAFA Art Museum. In October 2008, the museum moved to the No. 8 Huajiadi South Street in Beijing’s Chaoyang District, with a new building designed by the noted Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. In the end of 2010, the CAFA Art Museum was selected to be one of the firsts to be listed as the Key National Museums. The CAFA Art Museum is a professional and international modern art museum that conducts academic research, presents exhibitions, restores artworks and provides art education. The museum upholds the philosophy of open-mindedness and is rooted in the concept of using knowledge to serve society. It aims to bridge the past and the future through presenting great artistic and cultural accomplishments of our humanity, and share the culture of our times with all quarters of society.╱Taimiao Art MuseumThe Taimiao Art Museum is located in the Forbidden City architecture group, China’s highest-ranking architecture group that has lasted for 600 years. It is a combination of magnificent building, rich history, profound background and spirit of the era, an artistic and cultural palace of the new time against the ancient royal architectural background established in the Ming and Qing dynasties.The Taimiao Art Museum is co-operated by the Beijing Municipal Federation Trade, the Beijing Working People’s Cultural Palace and the Central Academy of Fine Arts. It has functions including exhibition, collection, research, public education and domestic and international cultural exchange, and keeps improving its operation mechanism and organization structures with high standard of sociability, professionalism and social benefits. About the Exhibition Academic Consultant: Fan Di'an Artistic Director: Su Xinping Curatorial Advisor: Hans Ulrich ObristChief Curator: Zhang Zikang Curators: Wang Chunchen Yue Jieqiong Organizers: Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Municipal Federation Trade Unions Co-Organizers: CAFA Art Museum, Taimiao Art Museum Chief Supporting Organization: Zhonghong Chuangyi (Beijing) Culture Development Co, Ltd.Supporting Organizations: Lisson Gallery, Galleria Continua and the British Council CAFA Art Museum | Time | 2019/10/25 - 2020/1/1Open to the public on 10/26| Opening Hours |Tuesday to Sunday 9:30-17:30(Last admission 17:00)/ Closed on Monday Taimiao Art Museum | Time | 2019/11/11-12/28| Opening Hours |9:00-17:00 daily(Last ticket purchase 16:30) Ticketing Information *  All kinds of ticket can be used throughout the exhibition starting 10/26.Scan the QR code to purchase ticketEarly-bird Ticket:90 yuan(Available from 2019/10/10-10/25)Adult ticket: 120 yuanDiscount ticket: 60 yuan(Please refer to discount ticket use policy below for eligibility)Family ticket: 260 yuan(2 adults and 1 child above 120 cm)*Group ticket: Groups of 10 or more may enjoy 20% discount off original price.Visitors with union membership card may enjoy 20% discount off original price.(Group ticket only available at the CAFAM front desk)For inquiries please call: 010-64771575 | Notes | * The ticket of Anish Kapoor exhibition at CAFA Art Museum is 120 yuan.

 Anish Kapoor solo exhibition in China  CAFA Art Museum & Taimiao Art Museum   CAFA Art Museum  2019/10/26 - 2020/1/1 Taimiao Art Museum 2019/11/11 - 12/28Mr. Anish Kapoor is a representative of contemporary Western art and also a renowned artist in the international contemporary art world. His works have been highlighted frequently in international art exhibitions, particularly those large-scale works towering in the urban public spaces, exerting a significant influence as a trans-century wonder of art. In Autumn 2019, his first large-scale retrospective art exhibition in China will be held simultaneously at CAFA Art Museum and the Taimiao Art Museum, which could be regarded as a spectacular journey of Kapoor’s art in China.Anish Kapoor, DestierroEarth, pigment and mechanical diggerDimensions variable©Anish Kapoor, 2019In the changing trend of Western art and culture at the end of 20th century, Kapoor’s art emerged with its ideas and forms showing both individuality and publicity. The interlacing of his rigorous thinking, mysterious fantasy and free imagination render his art beyond previous patterns, bursting out a luster of fresh perceptions, and becoming a cultural representation with multiple implications and abundant energy. Kapoor’s creation is rooted in ancient Indian philosophy. He integrates the spiritual core of Eastern culture with the modern symbolism of Western culture and establishes a unique relationship between material media and cultural metaphor, self-sufficient pattern and ecological environment. He advocates that color is baptism and belief, space is mind and soul, and material is in spiritual possession, which makes his works invite mysterious and powerful resonance force in the binary compound languages such as the material and immaterial, existence and transcendence, essence and extension. In the 1980s, Kapoor had become one of the representative artists of the “New British Sculpture”, and won the “Turner Prize” that manifests the spirit of western innovation and exploration. As his ideas correspond to and reflect the new cultural reality and cultural psychological signs in the global context, his art is widely accepted globally, resulting in a broad influence in cross-cultural communications.Anish Kapoor, Symphony for a Beloved Sun, 2013Stainless steel, wax, conveyer beltsPhoto credit: Dave Morgan ©Anish Kapoor, 2019The capability of the artists lies in the realization of a complex concept into a simple visual form and the application of the pure visual form in prompting the metaphysical implication. Kapoor is a master in grasping the relationship between purity and polysemy. He is good at using the space where the works are placed to create the site of generation of the works, producing illusive impressions and offering viewers with immersive perceptions. Some of the language signs belong to his specialities, such as the applying of red - a symbol of life origin, the powder that embodies the idea of “emptiness” and the “descension” that looks like a whirlpool, a cavern or a blackhole. The material and form he’s best at is his installation work of stainless-steel structure. This kind of works are extremely pure, always featuring a curved surface, thus making the bright and clean surface not only a shiny object itself but also a carrier of the surrounding landscape, while the phenomenon of refraction and reflection leads to a series of conversion from “ordinary” to “extraordinary”, producing a stunning “mirror image”.Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate, 2001-2004Stainless steel25 x 15 x 12mMillennium Park, Chicago©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, Non-Object (Spire), 2007Stainless steel302.3 x 300 x 300cmPhoto credit: Tim Mitchell©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, C-Curve, 2007Stainless steel2.2m x 7.7m x 3mPhoto credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019Sky Mirror, 2006Stainless steelDiameter: 10 mPhoto credit: Tim Mitchell©Anish Kapoor, 2019Tsunami, 2018Stainless steelPhoto credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019Mr. Kapoor attaches great importance to the journey of his art in China, and planned and prepared for the show together with my colleagues, who are the show’s host. We both hope that the exhibition could academically present Kapoor’s main artistic achievements to date, and also build a site for direct experience of his large-scale works. Contemporary Chinese art, while basing itself on domestic innovation and development, still needs to keep an eye on the world, carry out extensive exchanges and form a profound cultural dialogue. Kapoor’s art is so intelligently responsive to the complexity of today’s world, and so wonderfully makes spectators perceive the metaphysical secret echoes of its spirit. This Autumn, in response to Kapoor’s wish to “invite people to explore”, let’s immerse ourselves in his grand art scene and have a free discussion.Fan Di’anDirector of Central Academy of Fine ArtsPresident of Chinese Artists AssociationOctober 2019Anish Kapoor, Sectional Body preparing for Monadic Singularity, 2015PVC and steel730 x 730 x 730 cmPhoto credit: Tadzio©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, My Red Homeland, 2003Wax and oil-based paint, steel arm and motorDiameter: 12 m©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, To Reflect an Intimate Part of the Red, 1981Mixed materials, color powder200 x 800 x 800cmPhoto credit: Andrew Penketh©Anish Kapoor, 2019 About the Exhibition Academic Consultant: Fan Di'an Artistic Director: Su Xinping Curatorial Advisor: Hans Ulrich ObristChief Curator: Zhang Zikang Curators: Wang Chunchen Yue Jieqiong Organizers: Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Municipal Federation Trade Unions Co-Organizers: CAFA Art Museum, Taimiao Art Museum Chief Supporting Organization: Zhonghong Chuangyi (Beijing) Culture Development Co, Ltd.Supporting Organizations: Lisson Gallery, Galleria Continua and the British Council CAFA Art Museum | Time | 2019/10/25 - 2020/1/1Open to the public on 10/26| Opening Hours |Tuesday to Sunday 9:30-17:30(Last admission 17:00)/ Closed on Monday Taimiao Art Museum | Time | 2019/11/11-12/28| Opening Hours |9:00-17:00 daily(Last ticket purchase 16:30) Ticketing Information *  All kinds of ticket can be used throughout the exhibition starting 10/26.Scan the QR code to purchase ticketEarly-bird Ticket:90 yuan(Available from 2019/10/10-10/25)Adult ticket: 120 yuanDiscount ticket: 60 yuan(Please refer to discount ticket use policy below for eligibility)Family ticket: 260 yuan(2 adults and 1 child above 120 cm)*Group ticket: Groups of 10 or more may enjoy 20% discount off original price.Visitors with union membership card may enjoy 20% discount off original price.(Group ticket only available at the CAFAM front desk)For inquiries please call: 010-64771575 | Notes | * The ticket of Anish Kapoor exhibition at CAFA Art Museum is 120 yuan.
