This spring, Taipei Fine Arts Museum (TFAM) presented Xu Bing: A Retrospective, Asia’s first large-scale solo exhibition of Xu Bing’s work. The exhibition was curated by the Museum’s senior curator and art critic Chia Chi Jason Wang. The exhibition included such major works as Xu Bing’s Book from the Sky, Ghosts Pounding the Wall, 1st Class and massive new installation of Background Story series. Xu Bing: Art As a Form of Thinking, a lecture by noted scholar John Rajchman, Columbia University, investigated the way various modes of thinking are given play in Xu Bing’s creative practice.
