Wang Luyan has been a key figure in the development of contemporary Chinese art since the late 1970s, when the movement began. He exhibited with the Stars group in Beijing in 1979 and participated in the historic China / Avant-garde exhibition at the National Art Museum of China in 1989. With Chen Shaoping and Gu Dexin, Wang also co-founded the New Measurement Group, an experimental collective active from 1988 to 1995. His work has been included in many important international exhibitions, including the Second Asia Pacific Triennial (Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, 1996); Inside Out: New Chinese Art (Asia Society and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York, 1998); the First Guangzhou Triennial (2002); Hyper-Design, the Sixth Shanghai Biennale (2006); ’85 New Wave: The Birth of Chinese Contemporary Art (Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, 2007) and the Busan Biennale (2008 and 2010). Recent solo exhibitions include Sawing or Being Sawed (Arario Beijing, 2007); Wang Luyan: The Other Side of Totality (JoyArt, Beijing, 2008); Wang Luyan (Total Museum, Seoul, Korea, 2010), Wang Luyan (Galerie RX, Paris, 2011) and Diagramming Allegory (Parkview Green, Beijing, 2013). To compliment the Hong Kong Arts Centre exhibition, Wang and Legrady have a concurrent exhibition on view at Pékin Fine Arts (Hong Kong).
