Jizi: Journey of the Spirit opens at UMN Weisman Museum Oct 7

Jizi: Journey of the Spirit, a memorial retrospective curated with the artist’s son, Chunchen Wang, presents a selection of Jizi’s large scale ink paintings and a monumentally-sized rarely-seen, scroll. Jizi’s work confronted the legacy of the Revolution’s antipathy to religion and traditional Chinese life ways and attitudes. Deeply interested in the spirit, the artist’s work contains a strong metaphysical strain and sheds light on the complex, and at times contradictory, impulses at work in contemporary Chinese art and culture.
