Star Gallery

 Star Gallery

Star Gallery opened on April Fools Day 2005 with a show titled "Next Station, Cartoon?" that pinpointed the cartoon aesthetic now prevalent amongst a new generation of young Chinese artists. The project had its roots two years earlier in young curator Fang Fang, who had already begun signing contracts with the most promising artists across China; the gallery space was realized in Beijing's 798 art district and since then has continuously produced shows that challenge the milieu.

Specializing in artists of the "Post 70s" generation, a group whose works conspicuously lack in overplayed political themes and symbols, but who are searching to secure a place in the global art world as well as carve a place for fine art in mainland popular culture.

As the first to introduce already prominent young artists such as Chen Ke, Gao Yu, Ouyang Chun, Star Gallery represents outstanding new artists who are defining a new direction of Chinese contemporary art for the 21st century, names such as Huang Yuxing and Xu Maomao. Star Gallery positions itself as an active contributor and participant in China's creative culture, and through generous private investment is able to realize experimental exhibitions that are both daring and forward thinking, and continues to support young artists in realizing more ambitious projects.

Star Gallery promotes a truly interdisciplinary vision of art that blends various creative fields including design, fashion, and music, from the newest, most daring minds among the upcoming Chinese generation. Through exhibitions, media cooperation, museum consulting and other methods, we look to promote young Chinese artists internationally and on the mainland, keeping in mind Contemporary Chinese-pop cartoon generation doesn't always mean cute.

In addition to exhibitions, Star Gallery specialized in high quality publishing. We produce catalogues that push even the highest in global standards and the limits of printing technology. This is all in tune with our mission of promoting the Chinese artistic vision, informing Chinese collectors and art institutions and challenging notions of what art from China should look like.

Star Gallery welcomes any inquiries on art consultation, printing or collection building on the Mainland.
