Scope and Content

Catalogue for Cai Yuan and Jian Jun Xi's 2009 exhibition 'Game of Identity' at Tang Contemporary Art, Beijing.

The Game of Identity is an endless search looking for ways forward; a simple quest yet one that eludes our every move. Cai Yuan and Jianjun Xi are two artists that explore this search; they choose to carry out their art practices through a very unconventional and alternative way, a method that is anti-academic, anti-mainstream and anti-authority. Due to the difference and discrepancy of social and cultural background, and the years of cultural conflicts and impacts, they have participated in Western cultural and art events as both an insider and an outsider.
