Hao Jingfang’s novel Folding Beijing seems to provide an ultimate solution for endless urbanization. However, urban spaces are not only assets to be planned or traded, but also understood and shaped by the residents. In the exhibition “Rebel Cities”, people with different identities and backgrounds observe, discuss, and explore the city space with their artistic practice. Among the artists included, some have long been doing research and activism at specific—often socially and geographically maginalized—places in Beijing; some present their reflections and interventions in response to the functionalist ideology of urban planning; and others transform the physical, psychological, or online spaces surrounding the exhibition.
In “Rebel Cities”, Yang Art Museum, located within the commercial district Solana, will also be that folding space where you may encounter the artists’ works outside the venue, and you may be swept into distant time and space inside it. By discussing public space and thus evoking public identity, this exhibition encourages its audience to re-recognize and re-experience the cities we live in with sense of problematization.
