Special Preview: Li Gang Solo Exhibition
On April 27, courtesy of Galerie Urs Meile we have the opportunity to invite you to a special preview of the upcoming exhibition by emerging Chinese artist Li Gang at the gallery. The artist will be present at the event and reflect on his latest works in a conversation with Urs Meile.
The exhibition shows two main areas of the artist's work. Beautiful sculptures created from unexpected material combinations reach not only a singular beauty, but an immediate reflection of the artist’s understanding of reality. Large scale oil paintings, painted on woven canvas from the artist's hometown, reflect the human nature of the viewer and create an immediate physical closeness. Find more information on Li Gang and his recent works below.
This preview is exclusive for members and friends of Asia Society Switzerland and Galerie Urs Meile.
