Cézanne, Morandi, and Sanyu
Friday, April 26, 2019, 6pm
Gagosian, Hong Kong
Gagosian Hong Kong’s managing director Nick Simunovic and senior director Han-I Wang will discuss works by the three modern masters in the exhibition Cézanne, Morandi, and Sanyu at Gagosian, Hong Kong. In this presentation, Zeng Fanzhi examines the ways in which these three major figures set the stage for painting as we know it today, serving as crucial touchstones both for their contemporaries and for countless artists thereafter, including Zeng himself. The tour will discuss the visual relationships between the works and the recurring characteristics of modernism that are present in this show. To attend the free event, RSVP to email@example.com. Space is limited.

Zeng Fanzhi | Van Gogh
October 20, 2017–March 5, 2018
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
This show marks the first time the Van Gogh Museum has invited a contemporary Asian artist to exhibit at the institution. Zeng Fanzhi, who has been inspired by the artist, presents new never-before-exhibited paintings that refer to works by Van Gogh in the museum’s collection, creating a dialogue between modern and contemporary art. The show was extended to accommodate the addition of a new painting.
