Xu Zhen

Installation, performance, and video artist Xu Zhen combines humor, irony and political critique in his works, and has been frequently censored for his violent and erotic themes. Born in Shanghai, China, his works have been exhibited at elite galleries across the globe including ShanghART at Frieze New York and Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea Milan. Xu is hyper-aware of the contemporary art market and often critiques its norms and structure.
