Xiyadie: Queer Cut Utopias at the Drawing Center – Opening Feb 3, 2023

By The Drawing Center

Feb 3–May 14, 2023
Xiyadie: Queer Cut Utopias at the Drawing Center

Xiyadie: Queer Cut Utopias is the first New York solo exhibition of work by Chinese artist Xiyadie. The name Xiyadie, which translates to Siberian Butterfly, is one the artist chose for himself to describe his upbringing in Weinan, a city in the Shaanxi Province of Northwest China. A reflection of his personal and artistic evolution, the pseudonym also denotes Xiyadie’s enduring resilience despite the fact that he has never been able to freely show his work or live openly with regard to his sexual orientation. Queer Cut Utopias features more than thirty of Xiyadie’s intricate paper-cuts, dating from the early 1980s through today, each of which articulates his longing to fully express his queer desire. Xiyadie presents a strong sense of artistic autonomy; his highly graphic works on paper fuse traditional folk forms and iconography with narratives from his personal life.
