With their first location in the States, Alisan Fine Arts’s newly opened gallery space on New York City’s Upper East Side presents two exhibitions in conversation with each other during this season’s Asia Week New York.

Landscape as Metaphor: Contemporary Voices is a group exhibition featuring artists Bouie Choi, Chu Chu, Lam Tung Pang, Kelly Wang and Yang Yongliang, each of whom distinctively interpret the subject of landscape. While connected through observations of landscapes, spaces and cities, the works in this exhibition span a wide variety of mediums and each artist goes beyond physical observation to reveal deeply personal experiences and parts of their own identities.

Lui Shou-Kwan (1919-1975), Zen Painting 1970, A70-19, 1970, Chinese ink & color on paper, 151.5 x 82.5 cm

And on view in conjunction with Asia Week New York is Shifting Landscapes, a solo exhibition celebrating the art of pioneering ink artist Lui Shou-Kwan (1919-1975). Lui’s first exhibition in New York highlights transformative works from the artist’s career that bridged tradition and modernity while also sparking new dialogue in the international art community. Lui was a vanguard figure of the New Ink Movement in Hong Kong, a movement that reimagined the Chinese Ink tradition and flourished from the 1950s to 1970s. Extremely influential to the following generation of artists, Lui was instrumental in transforming traditional Chinese ink painting into a modern, global art form.

Accompanying Asia Week New York, Alisan Fine Arts will be hosting a reception and meet-and greet with artist Kelly Wang on March 14th from 5-8pm.
