Wang Huang Sheng, born in China, is an artist, curator and educationalist. He lives at present in Beijing. Wang is renowned for his pen-and-black-ink painting and for his installations. A short time ago the art exhibition “Wang Huang Sheng: Boundary/Space“ was held in the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum (2017) and Guangdong Museum of Art (2018). Wang is one of China’s foremost artists and a specialist in Chinese contemporary art. The exhibition presents a retrospective of Wang’s latest artworks. As curator of “Boundary/Space”, Wu Hung commented: “The creative experiments of Wang Huangsheng are full of the exploration of boundaries and space and the scepticism about them. While the traditional definition of ‘boundaries’ is literally bound to the line of separation, Wang Huangsheng’s line pictures and installations rupture this idea in order to manifest new possibilities for the interaction between line and space, and thus act as expression of contemporaneity in the visual arts.”
Wang is renowned both for his pen-and-ink painting and his installations. His artworks are collected and acclaimed by the Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Museum, the Uffizi, the Mantua Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, the Hoffmann Sammlung, the National Art Museum of China, the CAFA Art Museum, the Guangdong Museum, the Suzhou Museum, etc. In addition, Wang Huangsheng was director of the Guangdong Museum of Art from 2000 to 2009, and director of the CAFA Art Museum from 2009 to 2017. He founded and organised the Guangzhou Triennial, the Guangzhou Photograph Biennial, the “CAFAM Biennale”, the exhibition “CAFAM · Future“ and the Beijing Photograph Biennial. Wang Huangsheng is also professor at the Chinese Central Academy of Fine Arts, doctorate supervisor and professor at the University of Heidelberg, the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, Nanjing University of the Arts and the South China University of Education.
