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 Slightly Confused, Taikang Space, Beijing, China (2016) and Game, A-4 Contemporary Arts Center, Chengdu, China (2014). Recent group museum exhibitions include 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); Polyphony II – Ecological Survey of Chinese Art – Beijing, Art Museum of Nanjing University of the Arts, Nanjing, China (2014); Individual Growth – The Momentum of Contemporary Art, Shijiazhuang Art Museum, Shijiazhuang, China (2013) and Living・Being, Songzhuang Art Museum, Beijing, China (2012).

In 2016, Liang ban received the Jimei x Arles Discovery Award.

Liang Ban currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
