BACA Projects: Aura – Hao Liang
How to look at art from China: a sequel
On the 24th of November the exhibition BACA Projects: Aura will open in the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht. The project Aura has been developed by artist Hao Liang and writer Hu Fang in dialogue with the Bonnefantenmuseum and Van Eyck. In Aura, Hao Liang (1983, Chengdu, China) gives a cohesive presentation of his dedicated research into Chinese art history and the Bonnefantenmuseum’s collection. He is exhibiting a new series of collotypes, a selection of artworks from the Bonnefantenmuseum’s collection and work by the Van Eyck participants SulSolSal and Damon Zucconi. The project will be accompanied by a publication created in collaboration with the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou (Paris) and Vitamin Creative Space (Guangzhou, China), containing essays by Catherine David (deputy director, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou), Hu Fang (author) and Stijn Huijts (director Bonnefantenmuseum).
BACA Projects: Aura is a collaboration between the Bonnefantenmuseum and Van Eyck, on the occasion of the Award for Contemporary Art (BACA) 2016, presented to Cai Guo-Qiang (1957, Quanzhou, Fujian, China). Aura is also the second and final part of the project How to look at art from China, which has received financial support from the Mondriaan Fund and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
