The event will also include ‘ARTtalk & Dialogue,’ an interactive discussion between the artist, critics, curators and other art professionals about the role of artist in redefining the function of contemporary art in the art market and world.

Xikun, as the top-three of contemporary Chinese artists listed in 2010, was invited to create hundreds of portraits for world personages, and his sculptures have been featured in museums from St. Petersburg, Russia to Washington and everywhere in between. His works have been used in popular places like the Smithsonian International Center in Washington and Beijing Zoo in China. Xikun has won many international medals in the field of sculpture, such as the highest honorable medals from foreign presidents and cultural agencies. Last year, his sculpture set a Chinese record in the sculpture category at Poly International Auction.

Xikun is well-known not only for his artwork, but his role as an environmentalist, educator, public speaker and philosopher. For more information about Xikun’s art achievement and social life, please visit http://xikuny.squarespace.com
