Liu Bolin - Ghost Stories
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 - Sun, Oct 29, 2017
Venue: Maison européenne de la photographie (Paris, France)
The Maison Européenne de la Photographie dedicates a retrospective to Liu Bolin, the Chinese contemporary artist sometimes called "the human chameleon" due to its iconic performative photographs in which he blends into the backdrop by covering himself in paint. This major retrospective explores four themes that surround his works: politics, censorship, tradition and Chinese culture, consumption society, and press freedom.

Liu Bolin - Revealing Disappearance
Thu, Sep 7, 2017 - Sat, Oct 28, 2017
Venue: Galerie Paris-Beijing (Paris, France)
Opening on Thursday September 7 from 6am to 9am
Revealing Disappearance witnesses the artist’s engagement on environmental issues. Since the beginning of his career, ecology has been a central topic of Liu Bolin’s artistic production. In 2011 he braved the polluted waters of the Yellow River in one of the most industrialised regions of his country, two years ago he organised a collective performance at the edge of a large artificial forest aimed to stop the spreading of the Gobi desert in the Northern territories of China.
