Born in 1955 in Chongqing, China, Xu Bing is regarded as one of the heavyweights of Chinese contemporary art. Working in a wide range of media, Xu creates installations that question the idea of communicating meaning through language, demonstrating how both meanings and written words can be easily manipulated. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington DC, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Joan Miro Foundation in Spain, among others. He is currently presiding as the Vice President of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China.
