Exhibition Post-sense Sensibility: Trepidation and Will, jointly launched by Beijing Minsheng Art Museum and Ming Contemporary Art Museum opened on November 5, 2016 in Beijing, will be on view at Ming Contemporary Art Museum in Shanghai from March 19, 2017.

Surveying Post-sense Sensibility, one of the most important artistic movements in the history of Chinese contemporary art involving a handful of artists active at the time of happening with a significant impact extending beyond the year 2000, the exhibition also zeroes in on the questions and issues it has thus raised. Post-sense Sensibility is a 10-year-long local experiment on art practice initiated with Alien Bodies and Delusion, an exhibition curated by Qiu Zhijie and Wu Meichun in 1999. Divided into two parts, the exhibition is composed of artworks and archive, exhibiting works of artists involved in the movement, providing a rare chance to peak into their contemplation, discussion and actions which were fueled by passion. The exhibition has also invited active young artists whose approaches resemble that of Post-sense Sensibility artistic thinking, in order to present an open and evolving definition of Post-sense Sensibility.

Co-curated by founder and witness of the movement Qiu Zhijie, and Beijing Minsheng Art Museum vice director Guo Xiaoyan, the exhibition features 34 artworks by 29 artists, 20 of which have participated in the previous Post-sense Sensibility exhibitions, and 9 of which are young artists. Quoting the curator Qiu Zhijie, “[Post-sense Sensibility is] a constant withdraw from identity and categorizations, a constant curation and initiation of de-familiarization of self and experience. Post-sense sensibility is the mirror stage that gets completed, a period of adolescence that gets extended to a lifetime." We look forward to the follow-up discussion about Post-sense Sensibility the exhibition can initiate.

Different from the exhibition at Minsheng Art Museum in Beijing, Ming Contemporary Art Museum will launch a series of performances, lectures and other activities revolving around this post.
