Major Cao Fei Retrospective ‘Stages the Era’ at UCCA, Beijing

With “Cao Fei: Staging the Era,” the UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, opens a major retrospective of the trailblazing Chinese multimedia artist—the first in her home country. For over two decades, Fei has harnessed nascent formats (film, video, MMOs, VR, etc.) to surreally depict the dramatic social changes of a globalizing China. Years in the making, the show is realised as an IRL parkour of her many virtual worlds, where works bleed into one another to create “a sense of belonging to this particular here and now—a stage for our era.”
