LOVE THEATRE: INTIMATE

(Group Show)


Today Art Museum | Beijing, China


20 November - 28 February 2019

Love, although so omnipresent and universal, still holds enormous magic power when happens in real life. For artists, love is as important as life, whose romantic encounters always inspire their practice and transform into heart touching works. This winter, YT Pictures will present a series of video works around the theme of love, featuring fourteen artists’ moving and inspiring practice: some of them are milestones in the contemporary art history, whose practice witnessed their life changing romance; some of them are contemporary visual culture leaders, who reinterpret the meaning of love with tantalizing visual representations. 


LOVE: Intimate will be on view at Today Art Museum, No.2 from November 24, 2018 to February 24, 2019. Focusing on video art, this exhibition aims to examine the definition of intimacy shaped by contemporary visual culture. LOVE: Intimate exclusively features the love stories of Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, Tracey Emin, and Yayoi Kusama, whose works blur the boundary between art and life. Wong Ping, Cheng Ran, aaajiao and Liu Shiyuan’s works explore new tendency of intimacy under new historical conditions, questioning the shifting and multi-faced nature of love. In the special screening session, Yayoi Kusama’s most recent documentary Infinity (2018) will be first shown in mainland China.
