Bio

Born in 1963 in Beijing, Zhu Jia is often described as one of the pioneers of Chinese video art. He began to use a video camera by an accident of fate in the early 1990s. Zhu had been trained in the rigorous academic

traditions of the Oil Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 1988, when video as an art form was almost non-existent in China. His work focuses on aspects of the everyday

in a fast-transforming society, often employing repeated actions, fixed camera positions, and non-narrative sequences to challenge notions of objective reality. Zhu Jia’s work has been seen in group and solo shows

internationally since the mid-1990s, including Another Long March, the significant exhibition that introduced Chinese video and conceptual art to an international audience, at Chasse Kazerne, Fundament

Foundation, Breda, The Netherlands in 1997. Since that time his work has featured in major curated exhibitions including Art and China After 1989:Theater of the World at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, in 2017. Zhu Jia lives and works in Beijing.
