Cao Fei

1 September 2016

Beijing, China

Cao Fei’s recent solo exhibition at MoMA PS1 in New York, her first in the US, confirms her status as one of China’s most important artists on the international stage. In multimedia projects mixing social commentary with Pop aesthetics and documentary techniques, the artist reflects on the various changes affecting Chinese society. The playful mingling of fiction and reality that characterises her practice has attracted plenty of attention: her work has been shown at the Serpentine Gallery, London; Guggenheim, New York; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Fei was a nominee for the Future Generation Art Prize 2010 and a finalist of the Hugo Boss Prize in the same year.
