HUANG RUI
b. 1952, Beijing, China. Lives and works in Beijing, China.

Huang Rui is one of China’s most highly regarded artists and was one of the main protagonists of the first non-conformist art groups in 1979 China. A leader of the Stars Group (Xing Xing) art exhibition, he was pivotal in the art movement that initiated some of the first free art expressions in the Post-Mao era bringing together like-minded artists such as Wang Keping and Ma Desheng. As a seminal figure of the Dashanzi Factory 798 Art District, Huang Rui has sought to express art’s function as a reflection of society and its strength in addressing contemporary concerns.

The exhibition Right is Wrong / Four Decades of Chinese Art from the M+ Sigg Collection introduces art from four decades and presents the rapid emergence of contemporary art in China. Starting in the 1970s, we follow the development of contemporary art beginning with groups of artists such as the No Name Group and the Stars Group, via the events on Tiananmen Square in 1989, up to the incredibly vibrant art scene of today. Comprising almost 80 works of various formats and mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance, Right is Wrong presents a selection of seminal pieces by key figures in contemporary Chinese art history. The works are part of one of the world's foremost collections of Chinese contemporary art; the M+ Sigg Collection from M+, the museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, presently under construction and due to open in 2017.

PERFORMANCE
Huang Rui presents a performance at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery Art Projects: Black and White Cats 49,Then?
27 Nov 2014
Chinese Artist Huang Rui will present a performance art work entitled Black and White Cats 49,Then? Inspired by the slogan by Deng Xiaoping, “It doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white as long as it catches mice.” Huang Rui will create a live action painting that is 15 meters long and 4 meters tall. The painting is divided into 50 sections. The painting represents the colors black and white to signify the Yin and Yang. Divided into sections of 7, Huang Rui will paint the bodies of 7 women and create rubbings onto the canvas with their bodies. They will first be painted white and then black, eventually the rubbings will become grey. The numbers have significance: 7 times 7 is 49. China was established in 1949. 49 further is an important number in Buddhism as it is said that when one dies it takes 49 days for rebirth. The Buddha, Siddhāttha contemplated for 49 days before reaching enlightenment. Hong Kong is now in the 17th year since the Handover from the British. Deng Xiaoping created the slogan: “One Country Two Systems, 50 years Unchanged.” While a third of the 50 years has been completed the One Country Two Systems idea has already been challenged. Huang Rui’s performance asks what comes after 49?
