Jiang Zhi, b. 1971, Yuanjiang, Hunan province, China. Lives and works in Beijing.
Jiang works with a wide range of media, including photography, painting, video, and installation. Fiction and poetry have also been an important part of his artistic output. Consistently engaging with contemporary social and cultural issues, Jiang consciously positions himself at the intersection of poetics and sociology, while weaving mundane social and personal experiences into his works.
As one of the most versatile Chinese artists of his generation, Jiang Zhi has had two major solo retrospectives at OCAT Shenzhen (2016) and Times Museum in Guangzhou (2012). His work was also shown in international institutions and biennials, including the Guggenheim Museum (New York, USA, 2017); M+ Museum (Hong Kong, 2017); the 9th Shanghai Biennale (Shanghai Power Station of Art, Shanghai, China, 2012); the 4th Guangzhou Triennial (Guangdong Art Museum, Guangzhou, China, 2012); ICP and Asia Society (New York, USA, 2004); the 50th Biennale di Venezia (Venice, Italy, 2003); and the 4th Gwangju Biennale (Gwangju, South Korea, 2002). Jiang was awarded the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) in 2000; the Academic Award of Reshaping History (Chinart from 2000 to 2009) in 2010; and the Credit Suisse Today Art Award in 2012.
