‘Zhang Huan: Evoking Tradition’ includes more than 15 sculptures and works on paper by internationally celebrated contemporary artist Zhang Huan. Six large-scale works will be exhibited outdoors.
The exhibition focuses on Zhang’s interest in and transformation of aspects of Chinese traditional culture, in particular Buddhist imagery and related themes, and takes Three Legged Buddha (2007), from Storm King Art Center’s collection, as its inspiration.
‘Zhang Huan: Evoking Tradition’ includes works on loan from collections in the U.S. and China, including a new work on view for the first time, Milly’s Temple (2013), which incorporates a traditional Chinese street gateway.
This exhibition is organized by David R. Collens, Director and Curator of Storm King Art Center, Melissa Chiu, Director of Asia Society Museum, New York, and Nora Lawrence, Associate Curator, Storm King Art Center.
