Liu Xiaodong’s Disobeying the Rules

Created in 1996, Disobeying the Rules is one of Liu Xiaodong’s most representative works and one of his earliest paintings to thematise migrant workers and express his social concern. Disobeying the Rules depicts a large group of naked migrant workers on a truck, connecting their condition with the Chinese people’s general lack of self-determination. Disobeying the Rules will be offered in Sotheby’s Hong Kong Evening Sale on 5 October 2014 in Hong Kong.
