About the Fair
Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to announce its second participation in Art Cologne, at what will be the fair’s historic 50th edition.
Art Cologne 2016 Stand D-021
Koelnmesse, Hall 11.2, Messeplatz 1, 50679, Cologne, Germany
Pearl Lam Galleries will be the only gallery from Asia to participate alongside 88 other galleries in the Contemporary Art section in Hall 11.2, and it will be one of only three Asian galleries across all sectors of the fair out of the 219 participating galleries.
The Galleries will showcase contemporary artists from around the globe to demonstrate its long-standing ethos of stimulating cross-cultural dialogue on contemporary art between China, the rest of Asia, and the West. Exhibiting artists include Chinese artists Jiang Dahai (b. 1946), Qin Yufen (b. 1954), Qiu Deshu (b. 1948), Su Dong Ping (b. 1958), Su Xiaobai (b. 1949), Yuan Zuo (b. 1957), Zhang Jian-Jun (b. 1955), Zhou Yang Ming (b. 1971), and Zhu Jinshi (b. 1954), as well as Chun Kwang Young (b. 1944, Korea), Aldo Cristofaro (b. 1970, Italy), Leonardo Drew (b. 1961, USA), Gonkar Gyatso (b. 1961, Tibet), and Pino Pinelli (b. 1938, Italy).
The Galleries sector of the stand will strongly focus on Chinese abstract artists, whose works are rooted in Chinese philosophies and traditions such as ink painting and calligraphy. Differing from Western abstractionism, the work of these artists draws heavily from a cultural heritage of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. As well as exhibiting many artists who have been presented by Pearl Lam Galleries for many years, the Galleries will also be showing the work of Yuan Zuo for the first time.
