Liang Ban works across video, installation, photography and painting and has participated in numerous domestic and international exhibitions. Liang's art practice can be described as a tomb raider who excavates the essence of the subcultures, generic imageries, fictional legends and any other relevant information that can be pulled from our universal conscious. He uses this information to connect with a personal and/or socio-political tragedy, which results in wonderfully dramatic creations. Liang's concise art approach imbues his artworks with undeniable creativity and imagination, which invites viewers to face the often challenging issues found in his work.
Liang Ban's solo exhibitions include Self-Created Universe, Klein Sun Gallery, New York, USA (2017); Landscape Browser, de Sarthe Gallery, Beijing, China (2016); Slightly Confused, Taikang Space, Beijing, China (2016) and Game, A-4 Contemporary Arts Center, Chengdu, China (2014). Recent group museum exhibitions include The New Normal: China, Art, and 2017, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2017); Moments and More: Documents of Culture Pavilion, OCAT Shanghai, Shanghai, China (2017); Reversal Ritual, de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong (2017); Digital Samplers, or A New Generation Deep Dive into Internet Superposition, The Galaxy Museum of Contemporary Art, Chongqing, China (2017); Without Leaving Any Traces, MOCUBE, Beijing, China (2017); Position Fixing, Arte Place at the Guangzhou Opera House, Guangzhou, China (2016); Turning Point: Contemporary Art in China Since 2000, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2016); Olhares Interiores, Macao Museum of Art, Macao (2015).
