The exhibition introduced Zhang’s latest conceptual project of recent sculptures and paintings which are alterations to Chinese antiques. Born in Shanghai, Zhang has been living and working in NYC since 1989. Belonging to a very small group of avant-garde artists who left mainland China for Europe and the United States in the 1980s, Zhang creates projects ranging from intimate works on paper to large indoor and outdoor installations. His work combines traditional Chinese philosophy and aesthetics with Western art concepts to explore contemporary issues.
