Japanese Art 1910 – 1940 at Thomsen Gallery
Closes on Friday, July 28th

9 East 63rd Street
New York, NY 10065

There are still a few days left to view Japanese Art 1910 – 1940, an exhibition focusing on folding screens and hanging scrolls from the Taisho era (1912-26) and early Showa era (1926-1989), a time of great change for Japan and its arts. Experimented with new materials and perspectives, these painters shifted from stylized depictions of nature to naturalistic botanical studies. Making trips abroad, they incorporated foreign elements from their travels into their work.

Next to painting, bamboo baskets and intricate gold lacquer boxes from the Taisho and Showa eras highlight the technical perfection in works of art that were executed in traditional formats and materials but explored new worlds of expression and design.

Global Ink: INKstudio’s Tenth Anniversary Exhibition at INKstudio
Closes on Saturday, July 29th

Red no 1 B-1, Caochangdi
Chaoyang District, Beijing, China

Closing this Saturday, Global Ink: INKstudio’s Tenth Anniversary Exhibition consists of twelve separate solo presentations by twelve artists who INKstudio believes define the new global contemporary INK. The featured artists in this special exhibition are: Bingyi, Chen Haiyan, Huang Chih-yang, Li Jin, Li Huasheng, Liu Dan, Peng Kanglong, Wang Dongling, Wang Tiande, Xu Bing, Yang Jiechang and Zheng Chongbin.

Since its founding, INKstudio has been focused on researching, documenting and exhibiting the individual practices of the most important artists of this post-Cultural Revolution period. We see each artist as an individual with his or her own unique and distinctive approach to deconstructing, reconstructing and transmitting the language of INK and the worldview it expresses. Each such artistic practice is thus a manifesto—a statement in action—about what INK art is at its most essential core.
Be sure to view these extraordinary works before the show closes.
