Brief reviews of current shows

Under the Radar. Among the treasure trove of shows in the area, UNDER THE RADAR: Chinese Contemporary Art at Robischon is clearly one of the best. It was put together by gallery co-director Jennifer Doran; the title is a play on Radar: Selections from the Collection of Vicki & Kent Logan, currently in the Anschutz Gallery at the DAM's Hamilton building. The Logans also loaned Robischon a pair of monumental works -- a sculpture of a pig by Chen Wenling and a triptych devoted to Buddha by Yen Lei -- that add pizzazz to the offering. Catching your eye while you're still outside is "Tang Lady," a fiberglass sculpture of a woman in traditional dress by Yu Fan. Another Fan, "Liu Hulan," is a genuine showstopper: Lying on the ground on a pool of plastic blood is a supine woman whose throat has been cut. (Hulan was a martyr for the Communist revolution.) Other artists include Suo Tan, Liu Hong, Chen Liangjie and Zhang Dhali. Through December 30 at Robischon Gallery, 1740 Wazee Street, 303-298-7788. Reviewed November 16.
