iPreciation is pleased to announce that the gallery will be taking part for the first time at Art Miami New York, Pier 94 in early May 2016. We are proud to present a solo exhibition of Gao Xingjian’s early and recent ink paintings. Gao Xing Jian (b. 1940, China/France) is an important leading cultural figure who is much more than a painter as an accomplished and internationally recognised writer, playwright, director, painter and photographer who is the first Chinese to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000. In 1989, he was awarded the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship from the United States. In 1992, he was awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and in 2002 the Legion of Honor by the French government. In 2006, he was conferred the Lions Award by the New York Public Library (NYPL) at Library Lions Benefit event.
Art Miami New York 2016 is presented by the ownership team of Art Miami which debut last year at Pier 94 in early May 2015. This upcoming fair is the 2nd edition of Art Miami New York, happening in the same week alongside other important art events such as the Spring auctions and Frieze Week.
Managing Director Ms Helina Chan, shares “We are excited to present Gao’s ink paintings to the American audience. He is truly a unique Renaissance man of today, his intellectual rigour and strong sensibility as both a writer and painter really comes forth in these paintings. I hope the American museums and collectors will recognize his talents; Gao is not only a Chinese artist, he is an international artist who deals with the human condition and expresses his state of mind in a language that can be universally understood .”
