Gao Brothers

The Gao Brothers are two Chinese brothers. The elder one Gao Qiang is born in 1962 whereas Gao Zhen is born in 1968. They grew up in Jinan, China and now work in Beijing.

The Gao Brothers are committed artists. They had to grow up without their father's presence during the Mao regime. Later on, they participated in the Tiananmen demonstrations, so their passports were taken away for several years. They took on a critical approach towards the Chinese society, and this can be felt in their work.

The Gao Brothers's works revolves around photography, theater, video, painting and sculpture...In 1989, their « China/Avant-Garde » exhibition at the National Gallery of Beijing was famous all over the world and put them in the limelight.
The creations of the two brothers allow them to question humanity and fraternity of the current world.

The Gao Brothers exhibit their work in well-known contemporary art museums, such as the Guggenheim foundation or the Moma in New York, The Centre Pompidou in Paris or even the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
