Sun Xun has been selected to exhibit in ‘My Generation: Young Chinese Artists’. Co-presented by the Tampa Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, it is the first exhibition in the USA to focus solely on the new post-Mao generation of Chinese artists. The show offers a look at how China’s mega-development has impacted its youth culture and spawned new art trends. Sun Xun, in particular, spent several days creating a site-specific immersive installation in the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg that follows from his interest in considering alternative histories. Overall, the exhibition includes 27 emerging artists from mainland China and provides a cultural exchange as well as a dialogue about the Chinese artist’s place in a globalised art world.
