Spurs Gallery is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in China, representing more than 25 artists from all generations of the Chinese avant-garde, and collaborating with many more internationally. Its program explores the complete history that starts with the first avant-garde movements emerging after the Cultural Revolution, including artists from the 1970s underground period of the Stars and No Name Groups, the Beijing Abstract Art Movement in the early 1980s, the 85 New Wave Movement, the New Media Movement in the 1990s, and the pioneering young artists of the Post Internet era.
Spurs Gallery is continuing the legacy of Boers-Li Gallery, established in 2005, staging more than 90 exhibitions until today. Led by Jia Wei and Sherry Lai, Spurs Gallery supports the artists who have built a relationship with them over the last 15 years, while fostering young and new positions with the knowledge of the traditions of Chinese art and its contemporary developments. Equipped to emancipate and establish the history of Chinese contemporary art and its continued influence, the gallery provides a platform for artists to realize their practice on an international stage, and to start a dialog between the cutting-edge of Chinese art today and selected Western positions that pursue ideas for a globalized world.
