立冬啦!去草场地走一走

今年11月,想去草场地看绘画展的朋友不妨逛一逛站台中国赵刚个展“契丹人”,有些大尺幅、更多中等尺幅,画的风景、居室和人物。熟悉历史的人知道,13世纪时,契丹这一蒙古游牧民族被驱散甚而消亡,这些画为这段典故带来了一种不同的感受。赵刚是星星画会的老成员。1979年,在被北京中国美术馆拒展后,星星画会在美术馆东侧小花园铁栅栏外自己组织了一个展览。时至今日,我们庆幸依旧能看到他的画

对面的三影堂展出了往届年度摄影展获奖者的作品——包括邢丹文、阿斗、震撼人心的陈哲、引人沉思的张晋。值得花些时间好好看看这些不同视角下的镜头。

北京艺门也在展摄影,同时呈现张晓和王川的个展。读了墙上两位艺术家的自述,对其创作的了解颇有帮助。张晓的镜头捕捉了陕西社火表演及庙会期间的超现实视觉瞬间,而王川透过记录当代中国的镜头扪心自问意义何在、何去何从。

行至前波画廊夏星的个展《四年》同样与摄影有关,这些绘画全部取自《新京报》头条新闻的配图。其“强烈的观念性”不止局限于他对作品单一尺寸的限定或对复制新闻图片这一题材上的选择。

泰康空间的当前展览着实特别,因为它索引了泰康自2003年至今的发展历程,题为《从复兴门到草场地》,展品甚至包括衣服、老的苹果电脑和其他在泰康的“成长历程”中扮演过角色的“道具”。展览并非索然无味,反倒是颇有意义的文献纪录。

墨斋于周六开幕的王冬龄个展《墨意象》呈现的作品同样令人印象深刻,所有参展作品皆为此次展览全新创作,观者赞叹之余,不禁追思水墨在当代所继续承载的潜力。
