Opening of LUO YANG_GIRLS Ai Weiwei described Luo Yang as one of the “rising stars of Chinese photography” (New Statesman, 2012). She is well-acclaimed for her portrait-series GIRLS, which has been exhibited widely in China and Europe, featured on Huffington Post, BBC or Spiegel Online. GIRLS defy imposed expectations and stereotypes: they are bad-assed and self-aware, yet insecure, vulnerable and torn, with a supreme sense of cool. The GIRLS-series is bold and up-front, intimate and sensitive at the same time. It explores the themes of youth and femininity, while challenging traditional beliefs about women in Chinese society. LUO YANG will attend the opening. Selected high-quality wines will be kindly sponsored by the fabulous peeps from BottlesXO!
