Seasonal Proximities

Cao Yuxi Studio

Seasonal Proximities

In 2022, film director Zhang Yimou asked artist Cao Yuxi to create the audiovisuals for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games ceremony. Yet again, the Chinese creator surprised the audience with one of his immersive experiences, which often take the form of monumental installations that have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, such as MOMA PS1 and Beijing’s Today Art Museum.

Now, in collaboration with the Chinese Cultural Centre in Madrid and to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, the Veranos de la Villa festival is proud to present Seasonal Proximities, an exhibition in which Cao explores one of his favourite themes: how technology and the digital era influence our perception of reality. Using interactive screens and moving image projections, this fascinating work of art depicts vivid natural landscapes in an immersive 360-degree cinematic experience, transporting visitors to the great outdoors.

Organized by: Cultural Center of China in Madrid, Municipal Office of Culture, Radio, Television, Tourism and Sports of Shenzhen
