Artist Bio:

Gu Xiong was born 1953 in Chongqing, Sichuan, China. During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Xiong was sent to live in the countryside at the age of 18. He received a BFA and an MFA (1985) from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. In 1986 he attended a residency at the Banff Centre, the first artist from the People’s Republic of China to do so. After returning to China, he was a part of the 1989 China Avant-Garde exhibition that was shut down by the Chinese police, four months before Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. Xiong now lives in Vancouver, where he is a professor of art at UBC.
