ARARIO BEIJING > To Jan. 21: “Artists From Leipzig.”
After the reunification of Germany, some young artists (born in the 1970s) chose to remain in the realist tradition. They became members of the informal New Leipzig School. The show brings together a selection of their representational works: enigmatic paintings by Neo Rauch who combines surrealistic and realistic elements with icons from the American consumerist society; acrylic paintings by Martin Kobe; collage-like abstractions by Tobias Lehner and landscapes by David Schnell.  www.arariobeijing.com

BEIJING WORLD ART MUSEUM > To end 2008: “The Great Civilizations.” International collaboration between European and American institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum, the Philadelphia Museum, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and the Turin Museum, among others, has resulted in 300 artworks being sent to Beijing. The exhibition, which is supposed to acquaint the Chinese public with world art, documents the principal ancient civilizations from Mesopotamia, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome and the Maya civilization in Mexico.

GUANGDONG MUSEUM OF ART > To Dec. 10: “Figures and Images of 20th Century
Italy.” A selection of about 120 works from the extensive holdings of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto reflect the trends and evolution in Italian art in the last century. Spanning from Divisionism to Futurism, from informal Abstraction to neo-Expressionism, the exhibition brings together works by Boccioni, Carrà, Severini, Morandi and Fontana, among others.  www.gdmoa.org
