Nan Qi: Authority, Sex, Money

31 October - 23 November 2013 - Level 1

Authority, Sex, Money was the solo exhibition of Chinese artist Nan Qi, which was on view from 31 October to 23 November 2013 and presented in collaboration with China Art Foundation. The exhibition featured 30 of his most recent works.


The aim of this exhibition was to revisit traditional Chinese ink painting and engage our global audience in broader dialogues. Working with ink on Xuan paper alternating black and white, Nan Qi’s work is deeply rooted in the technique of traditional ink painting. From this strong personal attachment to ink, the artist incorporates new elements to his work, such as the dot pointillist and 3D techniques, injecting an innovative dimension to the traditional medium.
