We’re pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition at #PaceGallery in Hong Kong‘s H Queen’s building, “Mao Yan: By the Edge,” opening with a public reception on 7 June from 6–8 PM. This is Mao Yan’s first exhibition in #HongKong, and will feature ten works completed in 2018. – Under his father’s influence, #MaoYan began studying painting at an early age. By the time he was a teenager he had already mastered advanced techniques, and his talent was recognized even before he was admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts. In 1991, after graduating from the Oil Painting Department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Mao Yan began teaching at Nanjing University of the Arts, where he began to delve into portraiture. In his article Explorations in Realism, renowned art critic Li Xianting named Mao Yan as the representative of Chinese Neo-realism, stating that his works depict the "portraits of a generation whose emotions are gradually disappearing." – Image: ©️ Mao Yan

#SixWeeksSixDecades of Billy Apple Since the early 1980s, Apple has complemented his installation practice with text-based works that draw attention to the art system and highlight the artist’s social networks. These relationships are represented in the exhibition with works such as Bartered (Untransacted) (1984/2018), I.O.U. (Untransacted) (1987/2018), and Art and Life Business Plan (1985/2018), a composition created by dividing the surface of the canvas into the constituent parts of the golden ratio and weighting the colour according to the equivalent ratios of white and black to create the work's grey scale. ———————————————————————— Current exhibition @rossiandrossi Hong Kong: Billy Apple ® Six Decades 1962-2018. Open until July 28 -Tuesday to Saturday 11am-6pm. #mustsee
