On Thursday 17 March, Pace London opened Yellow, Wang Guangle’s first solo exhibition in Europe. Wang’s vivid yellow “Untitled” and vibrant “Coffin” paintings both serve to record the abstract concept of time through the application of paint, with layers added over a period of several weeks. The exhibition will remain on view on the ground floor gallery at 6 Burlington Gardens until 16 April 2016.
Earlier that week at Café Royal, Wang Guangle led a panel discussion with Pace Beijing and Hong Kong Director Leng Lin, Private Advisor and Curator Eli Zagury, emerging lecturer Di Luo. The event was moderated by University of Nottingham Professor Paul Gladston PhD MA BA (hons) PGCHE, Chair of Contemporary Visual Cultures and Critical Theory, Head of the Department of Culture, Film and Media, Director of the Centre for Contemporary East-Asian Cultural Studies, School of Cultures, Languages and Area.
