Chambers Fine Art Beijing is pleased to announce Post New Photo, a group exhibition of photographic work from some of China’s pioneering artists working in lens-based media. The show draws together their early independently produced photographic work alongside more recent and current works.

The exhibition is divided into two sections. The East Gallery presents works from the early 1990’s from Rong Rong’s East Village. These pieces have undeniably become among the defining images of the generation. When Chambers New York exhibited this work in 2003 the decision was taken not to show the works that featured the other Chambers’ long time collaborator Zhang Huan. In 2010, the reasons for this omission are happily no longer relevant and Chambers is delighted to focus in this section of the show uniquely on Rong Rong’s extraordinary works featuring the hypnotic Zhang Huan.

Against this historical background the West Gallery features recent works of firmly established artists who first developed their practice in that formative period including: Hong Lei; Jiang Zhi; Yan Lei; Qiu Zhijie; Zhao Liang; Zheng Guogu; and Zhuang Hui. In this way Post New Photo seeks to revisit some of the key moments in the recent history of photography in China while demonstrating how some of the most important artists of that time have gone on to develop their work in the international arena.

The link between Rong Rong’s early pieces and the later works lies in the show title – a homage to the rare New Photo magazine produced between 1996 and 1998. Photocopied like a fanzine, New Photo became the seminal underground photographic publication of its time. All of the artists presented by Chambers in this exhibition appeared in the pages of New Photo magazine over 15 years ago.

Almost a decade after the final issue of New Photo was circulated in Beijing, a limited edition re-print was published with the addition of artists’ interviews and critical texts. A special presentation of this highly collectible facsimile forms part of the exhibition.

Post New Photo is part of the Caochangdi Photo Spring program launched and coordinated by Three Shadows Photography Art Centre.

北京前波画廊将于2010年4月17日举办摄影作品群展《后新摄影》,集中展出中国先锋摄影艺术家的作品。本展览中将同时展出这些艺术家的早期制作与近期新作的摄影作品。

本展览将分为两部分。画廊东厅将展出荣荣在九十年代早期创作的《东村》。毋庸置疑,这些作品已经成为那一代艺术家的形象代表。前波画廊纽约在2003年展出此系列作品时,决定不展出其中一部分包括了另一位与前波长期合作的艺术家张洹的作品。时至今日,令我们做出此决定的原因已经不复存在,前波很高兴能借此机会集中展出荣荣这部分有关张洹超乎寻常的神情恍惚的作品。

在此历史背景下,画廊西厅将展出一些成熟艺术家的近作,包括:洪磊、蒋志、颜磊、邱志杰、赵亮、郑国谷、庄辉, 他们基本从同一时期开始创作并形成自己的风格。由此,《后新摄影》将重温中国摄影史近期的一些关键时刻,并阐述当时那些重要的艺术家是如何在国际舞台上进一步表现他们的创作能力。

本展览的主题陈述了其他参展艺术家近期和荣荣的早期作品间的联系。特别向1996年至1998年间出版的珍贵杂志《新摄影》表达了敬意。这本是当时非常重要的地下摄影出版物,几乎象一些粉丝杂志一样被众人复印。前波画廊此次展出的艺术家都在15年前的《新摄影》杂志中发表过作品。

最后一期《新摄影》杂志在北京发行已经过去十多年,三影堂摄影艺术中心和前波画廊,在07年又出版了一本该杂志有艺术家访谈和评论家文章的限量重印本。这本具有高度收藏价值的重印本也将特别呈现在本展览中。

《后新摄影》是三影堂摄影艺术中心发起并合作协办了草场地摄影春天活动的组成部分之一。
