Zhang Peili
2 Jun. - 7 Oct., 2018


Jan Hoetplein 1, 9000 Gent Belgium


The 2nd of June marks the opening of Zhang Peili's solo exhibition: Uplifting in S.M.A.K. museum, Ghent. S.M.A.K. is taking an extensive look at his artistic career and shows how he has evolved from avant-garde painting to experiments with video and digital media. The exhibition puts the accent on the 1980s and 1990s, but also presents a number of recent installations. The series of paintings entitled X? (1986-87) and now iconic video works such as Document on Hygiene No. 3 (1991) provide a framework within which to explore Zhang’s more recent practice.
