This year at ART021 Shanghai 2020 will participate in Gagosian with a personal stand of new paintings by Jia Aili, on display between 14 and 15 November. Along with the gallery booth at West Bund Art & Design 2020, on display November 12-15, this will be Gagosian’s first art fair since the COVID-19 lockdown in March.

Gagosian at ART021 Shanghai, moving between genre painting, portraiture, fantasy, and abstraction, Jia creates epic tableaux that both emerge from and challenge art historical assumptions in the context of a rapidly changing world. In this new series, Jia depicts mountain ranges from around the globe, including sites in China and Switzerland. One of these mountain paintings will be presented as a special installation in the gallery’s booth.On the occasion of the presentation of Jia’s new body of work at ART021, Gagosian Quarterly online will publish an interview with the artist by critic and curator Dr. Shen Qilan.Jia’s work is currently on view through April 25, 2021, in Duration: Chinese Art in Transformation, a group exhibition at Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing.

“I want my mountains to exude a sense of freedom that is open to pluralistic interpretations. They should be something that viewers can relate to on a personal level. I don’t want them to be either “Eastern” or “Western”; nor should they be historical or literary. I want to rid my paintings of the sense of history or even the sense of time—to remove all external references”.
