Liang Yuanwei: Behind the Curtain

Exhibition, Palazzo Pisani, Venice Biennale, Italy.

From May 12, 2017 until June 18, 2017
The K11 Art Foundation (KAF) presents this exhibition by Liang Yuanwei, one of China’s influential names in contemporary art. The show runs simultaneously with the 57th Biennale di Venezia.
The title of the exhibition, Behind the Curtain, alludes to the operatic traditions of both China and Europe, a stage curtain often being a work of art in its own right but also revealing a reality behind it.
Visitors to Venice’s Palazzo Pisani will see a selection of Liang’s impressive oil paintings, products of her attempt to perfectly imitate the detailed textures of fabrics.
