趙剛於邁阿密佩雷斯藝術博物館個展
Zhao Gang History Painting at Pérez Art Museum Miami

趙剛,雜種布魯斯,2014-2015,畫布油彩,400 x 600 公分
Zhao Gang, Cocksucker Blues, 2014-2015, oil on canvas, 400 x 600 cm

趙剛將於5月24日起於邁阿密佩雷斯藝術博物館(PAMM)展出個展「趙剛:歷史畫」,透過藝術家的獨特視角來探討中西方交疊的文化歷史。

「趙剛:歷史畫」將展出14件1997年至2018年的作品,討論多重文化並再現了藝術家的複雜身份。在趙剛的作品中時常可以看見他已戲謔而諷刺的手法來描繪中國革命歷史。部分的畫作將以沙龍的形式在邁阿密佩雷斯藝術博物館中,建於羅斯艾倫梅耶霍夫格林與傑拉德格林藝廊的一間「公寓」展出。如此的展出形式模仿了1980至90年代,為了抗議政府核准空間的短缺而在北京出現的公寓實驗藝術。

將與趙剛在邁阿密佩雷斯藝術博物館的展覽相呼應的是現正於Each Modern亞紀畫廊展出的「趙 剛 回 顧 展」。本展透過藝術家回看了當代藝術、中國與俄國的革命歷史,兩層樓的空間展出了水彩、油 彩、畫布絹印、裝置與攝影。「趙 剛 回 顧 展」將展至5月18日,歡迎蒞臨觀展。

*Each Modern亞紀畫廊將於5月1日勞動節休館一天,造成不便儘請見諒。

Zhao Gang’s solo exhibition at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will be opening on May 24, 2019. The show, titled “Zhao Gang: History Painting,” explores the cross-cultural history of the East and West through the unique perspective of the artist.

“Zhao Gang: History Painting” brings together fourteen works, dating from 1997 to 2018, that express the complex cross-cultural aspects of Zhao’s identity and practice. His works often depict images from Chinese revolutionary history with humor and ironic distance. Some of the paintings will be displayed salon style inside an “apartment” built inside PAMM’s Rose Ellen Meyerhoff Greene and Gerald Greene Gallery. This presentation mimics the Beijing practice of showing experimental art in residential apartments in the 1980’s and 90’s as a response to the lack of government-approved venues.

Meanwhile, Zhao Gang’s exhibition at Each Modern, “Zhao Gang: Diluted Retrospective,” will continue until its final day, May 18, 2019. Like the artist‘s show at PAMM, the exhibition addresses Zhao Gang’s unique vantage point in contemporary art while exploring revolutionary histories of China and Russia. The extensive show features a display of water colors, sculpture, oil on canvas, photography, and silkscreened oil on canvas, on two floors.

*The gallery will be closed on May 1st in observance of Labor Day.
