Yan Xing: Dangerous Afternoon


Kunsthalle Basel will present the first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland of Yan Xing, born in 1986 in Chongqing, China, and living and working in Beijing and Los Angeles. Yan Xing’s practice involves sculpture, video, photography, installation, and performance. Often there are elaborate, fantastical backstories to his projects, and this one will be no exception. For the artist’s exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel, he will present a newly commissioned installation that acts as a fictive exhibition by a fictive curator whose fantasy life is the libidinal undercurrent to the project.
