Artist Wang Chuan, full-time professor in the new media department of Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, will have his first solo-show in Beijing at Pékin Fine Arts in spring 2009. The exhibit centers on 8 historic sites of Beijing, each depicted in one panoramic landscape color photo shot, revealing real places stripped of nostalgia or historical reference.

Using digital pixel-comprised imagery, Wang digs deep beneath the surface of the photo, aiming to unearth the fundamental “compressed” features of Beijing. The pixilated images reveal traces of history amidst Beijing’s policy of unbridled construction to achieve a more “civilized” city.
