BOZAR presents Chinese Utopias Revisited – The Elephants, a group show with a focus on contemporary Chinese art, opening 17 July. Alongside work by nine artists from China (including Cao Fei), the elaborate work alphabet bété of the African artist Frédéric Bruly Bouabré stands along the work of Xu Bing. Both artists depict the power of language in their oeuvre. This interplay doesn’t just break through clichés, but demonstrates how artists from the Far East speak the same visual language as artists from all around the world.
