Calendar: Members-Only Tour of Zhao Gang: History Painting

Event Description

Members are invited to join a special tour of Zhao Gang: History Painting with guest curator Christian Viveros-Fauné. Zhao Gang (b. 1961, Beijing) is a key figure in the development of Chinese contemporary art. The youngest member of the Stars Group—China's first modern art movement—Gang left China in 1983 to study, live, and work in Europe and the United States. Zhao Gang: History Painting consists of fourteen paintings that bring together the radically multicultural aspects of Gang's art and identity. A number of works in the exhibition will be displayed salon style in a 130-square-foot "apartment" built inside the exhibition space. The room mimics the 1980s phenomenon of "apartment art," the exhibition format adopted by the era's artists in response to their distrust in official government venues.

After the tour, members at the Sustaining level and above are invited to mix and mingle in our Pop-Up Members Lounge, serving complimentary beer, wine, and signature cocktails.
