CURATORS

Xia Jifeng is born in 1969 in Zhejiang province. As writer and poet, he has published numerous works, including
collection of short stories Young Criminals, collection of poems Learning to Write, The Sentimental Rhetoric, etc. Since
2006 he started to wrtie art criticism on Chinese Contemporary Art. He observes the evolution of contemporary art through literary trends that he has experienced and understood. He has also been involved in and committed to the development of Chinese Contemporary Art. With his strong ability and rich experience, Xia Jifeng curated a dozens of exhibitions in 
China and abroad. Lately he has been focusing on the retrospection and contemplation on Chinese Contemporary Art, 
especially the trends and attempations appeared after 2000. By curating exhibitions, writing and publishing art critiques, Xia Jifeng seeks to build a discourse system of which the main body consists of domestic curators, artists and art critics, a system that is unique and different from the western one.


 

He is now the director of Hive Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing.
