Qiu Zhijie
Qiu Zhijie (born in 1969 in Zhangzhou, China, lives and works in Beijing and Hangzhou) divides his time between his artistic production, curatorial projects and academic roles as Professor and Dean of the School of Experimental Art (CAFA), and Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou. In 1993 Qiu Zhijie was the youngest artist featured in the seminal exhibition “China's New Art Post-1989,” the first major collection of Chinese experimental art displayed outside of the country. Since then his work has been extensively exhibited within and outside China.
