This publication coincides with Liu Xiaodong's Hotan Project. Liu Xiaodong's Hotan Project & Xinjiang Research, a live painting project by Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong. Through visiting the countryside, Liu found in Hotan, Xinjiang some jade excavation workers and their families, and painted them against the background of the White Jade River. The four paintings were then exhibited at Xinjiang Art Center, Urumqi, from 25 August to 8 October 2012, and at Today Art Museum, Beijing, from 13 January to 23 February 2013.
The excavation and marketing of Hotan Jade has formed a economic chain linking different strata of the society, and intervening from the bottom of this chain Liu studies Xijiang in terms of its unique geographies and the expansion of the mainland's economic and cultural linkages.
