    Public Art Fund Presents Sui Jianguo Sculptures in New York this Fall

    • Pace Gallery to participate in ART 021 Contemporary Art Fair in Shanghai

      Pace Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the second edition of the ART 021 Contemporary Art Fair in Shanghai from November 12 to 16, 2014. Pace will present more than thirty works by a diverse group of international artists at booth 2-02.

      Pace’s presentation at Art 021 will include a selection of artists whose work employs quotidian materials and images. Yin Xiuzhen and Tara Donovan incorporate commonplace items such as recycled clothing in the case of the former and pins, Mylar and paper plates in the case of the later. Paintings by Li Songsong and Mao Yan will highlight the role these two artists play as interlocutors of their generation in contemporary China. Both artists create an emotional charge from seemingly innocuous imagery in their technically rigorous and expressive oil paintings.

      Pace’s booth will also include a selection of photographs by Song Dong, a pioneering performance artist in China, and New York-based Hiroshi Sugimoto. Pace will also present works by Robert Irwin, Yoshitomo Nara, Yin Xiuzhen and Zhang Huan.

    • Zhang Huan's Spring Poppy Fields No. 31 on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum

      Zhang Huan's painting, Spring Poppy Fields No. 31, will be on display in the China gallery of the Victoria & Albert Museum from 24 September 2014 for a duration of two years.

      Employing an almost pointillist technique, Zhang Huan’s application of the thick pigment performs an optical illusion. From a distance, the canvas metamorphoses into a field of psychedelic colours; the pink, teal, lilac and cornflower blue palette appears to pulsate with energy. Upon closer inspection, the colours separate and the individual faces of the skulls emerge from their abstraction. Seemingly uncontrolled and haphazard, the placement of the skulls on the canvas is misleading.

      More details can be found on the V&A's website and here.
