David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the renowned Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (b. 1958) at the gallery’s Hong Kong location—his first solo presentation in Greater China.
On view will be a selection of recent paintings and a new single-channel animated video that are drawn from a range of historical and contemporary images. Together the works share an undercurrent, as suggested by the exhibition’s title, of paradox and uncertainty.
Tuymans has become known for a distinctive style of painting that demonstrates the power of images to simultaneously communicate and withhold. Emerging in the 1980s, Tuymans pioneered a decidedly non-narrative approach to figurative painting, instead exploring how information can be layered and embedded within certain scenes and signifiers.
On the occasion of this exhibition, the artist will be in conversation with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist about his recent work.
Please RSVP here and join us on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 8 AM ET | 2 PM CEST | 1 PM BST | 8 PM HKT for the live Zoom event.
藉由本次展覽，藝術家將與策展人漢斯·烏爾里希·歐布利斯特（Hans Ulrich Obrist）舉辦一場Zoom對談。
The gallery is open to the public with a limited number of visitors allowed into the exhibition spaces at a time, in accordance with city guidelines.
