Yun Fei Ji, one of China’s most celebrated contemporary artists, is known for his masterful use of traditional Chinese ink painting, His practice is rooted in travel and observation, and his interests frequently encompass the effects that grand infrastructural projects and natural disasters have on average people. Ji’s paintings often deal with human displacement, sometimes adding a mythological dimension to recent events. This exhibition features a number of Ji’s major works, including several scroll paintings more than ten meters long, which have never before been seen together. The works were created during the past decade; some of the pieces were made especially for this exhibition.https://fac.umass.edu/UMCA/Online/YunFeiJi
