Gao XingjianT’ang Haywen Catalogue
As part of French May this year, Alisan Fine Arts is presenting an exhibition with an “East-West” theme featuring two French-Chinese artists, T’ang Haywen (1927-1991), Nobel Laureate for Literature, Gao Xingjian (b. 1940), and a French artist, Jean Degottex (1918-1988). T’ang and Gao both explore the power of Chinese ink on rice paper, bringing to mind the abstraction of the West; while Degottex’s works show the influence of Chinese calligraphy on his paintings. This will be the first show for Degottex in Hong Kong.

Venue:
