Jennifer Wen Ma's ongoing solo show at Tang Contemporary Art Beijing showcases the artist's works created since 2009, and covers installations, ink paintings and videos. The show, entitled Cry Joy Park-Fold, which runs until Dec 15, features a white garden and a black garden with paper sculptures, to explore issues such as the inequality in wealth. It also features a glass wall showcasing videos inspired by the artist's iconic "installation" opera, Paradise Interrupted, an 80-minute show that was staged at the 2016 Lincoln Center Festival.
The 45-year-old artist, who is also a designer and a director, integrates elements from different genres-including performance art, fashion design, films, paintings and technology-into her works. She was once a key member in the design team involved in the Beijing Olympic Games' opening and closing ceremonies.

New York-based painter Andrew Sendor's show Saturday's Descent at the Beijing Art Now gallery features a group of fictional figures created by the artist. The characters are painted in such detail that viewers may think that they live in the real world. His Saturday's Descent covers a young woman's memories and relationships. It is a short and concise narrative without a beginning or an end-something the artist usually does with his creations. His first show in Asia, it runs through Dec 3.
