Zhang Huan: Exclusive Members-Only Preview
Thursday, May 23, 6–8 pm
Chinese artist Zhang Huan (b.1965) is among the most prodigious and insightful artists working today. As a sculptor, painter, photographer, performance and installation artist, his impact in broadening the global dimensions of contemporary art has been immense. Themes of physical endurance and spiritual tranquility, Chinese history and heritage, and an interest in and reverence for Buddhism inform his repertoire.
This exhibition explores the world of Zhang Huan both thematically and artistically. While works of sculpture are central to this presentation, including his iconic copper and steel Long Island Buddha, several of the artist's painting and photographs will also be featured. This exhibition is organized by Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in cooperation with the artist and Pace Gallery, New York, Beijing and London.
