LOOP Barcelona

Almanac Barcelona Hotel, Room 110

Esther Schipper is pleased to announce the 17th edition of LOOP Barcelona, a fair exclusively dedicated to artists' films and video works.

For our first participation, we will present Tao Hui's two-channel video Double Talk, 2018.

Tao Hui (b. 1987 in Yunyang, Chongqing, China) lives and works in Beijing. Tao Hui creates immersive video-installations that bend the boundaries of fiction and reality to address cultural and identity-related issues. His works are visceral and provocative yet enlightening and always imbued with strong emotional power and a sense of displacement, inviting the viewers to confront themselves with their own cultural history, ways of living and social identities.

Tao Hui has been shortlisted for the inaugural Sigg Prize that recognizes outstanding practices of artists born or working in the Greater China region. An exhibition at M+ Pavilion, Hong Kong, will present the work of all six shortlisted artists from December 6, 2019 – April 13, 2020. The winner will be announced in January 2020.
