Exhibit Features Chinese Artist

An exhibit of works by internationally renowned artist Lianjie Zheng opens at Moberg Gallery with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 26.

Also featured in the gallery, through June 15, are works by Georgi Andonov, Carolina Sardi, Mariela Yeregui, Goizane Esain, Antwain Clarke, Annick Ibsen, Juan Arreaza, and Tibi Chelcea. Readers of dsm magazine were introduced to three of these artists in feature stories: Clarke, Ibsen, and Chelcea.

Born in Beijing in 1962, Zheng grew up during China’s “cultural revolution.” As a child, he studied traditional ink painting, Chinese calligraphy and poetry. After the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, he ventured beyond those traditional art forms, creating images, films and performance work that elevated his reputation. He currently divides his time between New York and China.
