A collection of my work on display at Wanliu Property showrooms in Beijing.
As marker of amazing cross cultural collaborative projects over recent years I have just mailed these catalogues to the Asia Art Archive library in Hong Kong. I was co curator on these projects. They are already in the library archive of National College of Art and Design Dublin Ireland and Limerick LSAD. If you know of any good archive collections for exhibitions in China I would be really grateful if you let me know , you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a perfect weather day on Saturday April 22nd and began the day with a trip to 798 . I have been waiting for a Doig show here in Beijing for a while, it finally arrived. I couldn’t make the opening as my own show in Dong Yue was opening the following day. Two weeks later I finally make it to Faurschou Foundation. ‘Cabins and Canoes’ didn’t disappoint.

Guilin Path 《桂林田间路》Niamh Cunningham 70x70cm
Niamh Cunningham’s first sojourn from the green and blue horizons of her native Ireland took her to the striking seasonal shifts of bright cityscapes and deep-colored forests of Prague and the desert yellows and aquatic blues of Dubai. She is now long settled in the lands of China. From her home in Beijing’s metropolis to the interior of Wuling to Guilin, Cunningham has encountered China’s own palette of colours as well as its distinct vistas and close-ups in which to contemplate the glories of the natural world.
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at the opening ceremony for Beijing No 55 High School. The students were starting back after their long Chinese Spring Festival break ready to face the music for the next semester.
