“Bentu, Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformation” at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris
The word bentu means ‘native soil’ but does not have a connotation of nationalism. Rather it represents a concept that aims to reconcile the local and the global.
This exhibition, the first dedicated to contemporary Chinese art in France in the past ten years, brings together 12 artists of different generations who live on mainland China.
The choice of works does not seek to show a panorama of the artistic scene in China, but aims to draw attention to the multiform character of the production in the country, which undergoes rapid development and which affirms itself through outstanding individuals, rather than through specific movements.
Open daily 12pm-7pm. Fridays until 11pm. Weekends 11am- 8pm. Closed Tuesdays.
