Hanart TZ Gallery presents Liu Dahong's solo exhibition, which will be featuring over 40 new paintings. The theme of the exhibition is based on the artist's perspective of his own childhood and childhood in China.

“Whenever my childhood is annihilated, I succeed in recovering it.” -Liu Dahong

“When a child reaches his or her first month’s birthday in China, there is a custom of the newborn’s parents handing out boiled eggs dyed red to friends and family; what this ancient ritual really signifies is the beginning of a life of troublemaking, literally, a life full of bad eggs. Causing mischief is essential to human life. The value of one’s life is determined by how much trouble one stirs up. This exhibition starts off with minor shenanigans and concludes with major monkey business, with the theme of insubordination running throughout. Human vitality and creativity cannot exist without a certain amount of naughtiness. There is, however, one exception to this rule: if the government starts acting up again, the situation is bound to get terribly messy.” (from Liu Dahong’s New Year’s Day: Make Trouble)
