Ink Studio Pop-Up at Sundaram Tagore Gallery (Madison Avenue)

11am-6pm | Exhibition Viewing

Zheng Chongbin

Following his selection by curators Raqs Media Collective as a core artist of the 2016-2017 Shanghai biennale, and his acclaimed solo exhibition at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017, Zheng Chongbin presents new works from his current series of abstract land-art paintings. Inspired by the writings of American earthworks artist Robert Smithson, Zheng Chongbin’s work uses his indexical abstraction not to picture but to instantiate – at physical and temporal scales perceivable by humans – the entropic dynamics and resulting fractal geometries of the earth’s geological processes. The gallery is a few short blocks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which will simultaneously show a recently acquired major work by the artist in its new Chinese painting exhibition.
