Pearl Lam Galleries at Art Taipei 2013
by Pearl Lam Galleries
Location: Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 (Stand B-01)
Artist(s): GROUP SHOW
Date: 8 Nov - 11 Nov 2013

Pearl Lam Galleries is delighted to announce its participation in Art Taipei, exhibiting at stand B-01 from 8–11 November 2013. The stand will present a selection of key works by influential artists Jenny Holzer, Jim Lambie, Jason Martin, Michael Wilkinson, Li Huasheng, Zhu Jinshi, and Michael Chow aka Zhou Yinghua ~O-O~, which will be shown alongside emerging Chinese artists, including Juju Sun and Tsang Kin-Wah. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Art Taipei, the Galleries will also present a site-specific installation by British artist Jim Lambie in Public Area C.

The stand selection reflects Pearl Lam Galleries’ continued mission to foster cross-cultural dialogue and exchange between Asia and the rest of the world, and the Galleries’ long- established support for Asian art over the past twenty years. Highlights include leading American artist Jenny Holzer’s new Chinese language LED works, selected to coincide with her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, which recently opened at Pearl Lam Galleries. In a striking contrast to these LED pieces, the stand will also feature three thickly-layered oil paintings by Chinese abstract master Zhu Jinshi, a founding member of radical artists collective The Stars (Xing Xing), a group which presented the first-ever independent exhibition of contemporary art in China in 1979.

The stand presents some of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary artists showing in Taipei for the first time, including Jason Martin, who exploded onto the global visual arts scene as an active member of the ‘Young British Artists’ generation and came to the world’s attention in the ground-breaking show Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection in the 1990’s. Works from Martin’s Dictator series—almost sculptural paintings which manipulate thickly layered pure pigment on aluminium—will be exhibited alongside three important new works by Michael Wilkinson, a British artist currently participating in the major group show Art Under Attack: Histories of British Iconoclasm at Tate Britain, London.

A thought-provoking presentation of Chinese artists will also be exhibited at the stand, exploring a variety of traditional and new media, including a new silkscreen and acrylic work, ISHOPYOUSHOPHESHOP, by Tsang Kin-Wah, two ink on Xuan (rice) paper works by Li Huasheng, shown alongside Michael Chow aka Zhou Yinghua ~O-O~’s large-scale Homage to MB mixed media on canvas.

“Asia’s art scene continues to develop rapidly. Our participation in ART TAIPEI represents Pearl Lam Galleries’ commitment to exploring new platforms to showcase our artists’ work, as the city continues to develop as an important market for contemporary visual art”.
—Pearl Lam, Founder of Pearl Lam Galleries
