We are proud to announce the opening of Boers-Li Gallery’s outpost in New York City. This expansion of our Beijing-based gallery is in accord with our vision to introduce our artists to a broader audience. We are located in a landmarked townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, within walking distance of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. The gallery’s new branch will present works from our veteran artists, and, at the same time, develop new programs in collaboration with international artists outside of China.
For more than 10 years, Boers-Li Gallery has been introducing Chinese artists of different generations of the country’s short history of contemporary art. We mount exhibitions at our Beijing gallery and participate in various international art fairs, such as Frieze New York and Frieze Masters, Art Basel in Switzerland and in Hong Kong, and regional fairs in Shanghai, Taipei and Singapore. The program of Boers-Li Gallery seeks to open dialogues between the different stages of Chinese contemporary art: the "underground" period of No Name Group and Star Group from the 1970s, the Beijing Abstract Movement from the early 1980s, the '85 New Wave Movement, the New Media Movement in the 1990s, as well as the younger generations: the so-called “Millennials” and "Post-Internet."
