Permanent Collection Exhibition

The Magician of the Cutting Papers – Lu Shengzhong

Jan 2, 2024 〜 Apr 9, 2024

Asia Gallery, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum

Lu Shengzhong is one of the representative artists from China, whose work transcended the frame of folk art by taking forms of large scale installations since late 1980s, referring its source to Chinese folk art (especially cutting papers and New Year paintings).

This exhibition looks back at Lu’s career and achievements through our museum collection, following the artist’s passing at the end of last year. We will also introduce works by another paper cutting artist whom Lu looked up to as the master as well as those created by his students.
