Cao Fei 曹斐

Cao Fei (b. 1978, Guangzhou) is a Chinese artist based in Beijing. She is one of the most significant and innovative young artists to have emerged on the international scene from China. Her multimedia projects explore the lost dreams of the young Chinese generation and their strategies for overcoming and escaping reality. She mixes social commentary, popular aesthetics, references to Surrealism, and documentary conventions in her films and installations. Her works reflect on the rapid and chaotic changes that are occurring in Chinese society today.

Cao Fei’s recent solo exhibition Splendid River took place at Secession Museum, Vienna, Austria. Cao Fei’s recent work La Town (2014) was on display at 56th Venice Biennale: All the World’s Futures.
