Top 10 Exhibitions in Asia in May 2016

Liu Wei, “Panorama,” PLATEAU, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, through August 14, 2016


A leading figure of the so-called Post-Sense Sensibility generation of Chinese artists who came to prominence in the late 1990s, Liu Wei is known for a hard-edged abstract idiom and formalist vocabulary that take center stage at this ambitious exhibition. Following the artist’s critically acclaimed 2015 retrospective “Colors,” held at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in Beijing, this show presents highlights from the last 20 years of Liu Wei’s diverse practice, which encompasses video, installation, and sculpture, as well as works on canvas and paper, in addition to Liu’s latest site-specific installation, housed under the roof of PLATEAU’s glass pavilion.
