Chambers Gallery

Chambers Fine Art is named after the distinguished 18th century British architect, Sir William Chambers who, in addition to his architectural practice, was a leading exponent of Chinese principles in garden design. Inspired by the example of Chambers, Christophe W. Mao, founder and director of the gallery since 2000, has organized a stimulating series of exhibitions that have introduced the work of some of the best artists active in China today to an American audience.

The gallery program has alternated between monographic exhibitions devoted to the work of established artists and thematic exhibitions organized by recognized scholars in the field as well as critics based in Beijing. Thus the first exhibition in the gallery, First Encounter, was devoted to the work of Lu Shengzhong, one of the outstanding artists to have emerged in China in the mid-1980s. Working in the traditional medium of paper-cut, Lu Shengzhong converted the gallery space into a vividly colored “temple” that evoked another aspect of life in China than the contemporary urban culture explored by so many younger artists.

Most of the exhibitions at Chambers Fine Art are accompanied by catalogues frequently designed by the artists themselves, as is the case with Lu Shengzhong's First Encounter and The Book of Humanity (2004), and Chopsticks by Song Dong and Yin Xiuzhen. Working together for the first time in this exhibition, the highly regarded performance and installation artists Song Dong and Yin Xiuzhen used eating utensils as metaphors for the personal bonds that unite them. Particularly noteworthy is the recently published catalogue of Rong Rong 's East Village, the first extensive survey of the short-lived but influential artists' community that included Ma Liuming and Zhang Huan. The exhibition coincided with the publication of a limited-edition portfolio of original photographs housed in an iron box with text by Wu Hung.

Chambers Fine Art's program for the upcoming year will continue the successful pattern of alternating exhibitions by influential established artists with young emerging talents.
