This event has ended.

Pace Prints presents an exhibition of monoprints and sculptures by Jian-Jun Zhang, Water, Ink, China.

Jian-Jun Zhang: Water, Ink, China features the artist’s new monoprints, which investigate the properties of water both as an abstract element and as matter that flows across time and space. In this First Drop of Water series, pictured above, Zhang evokes the time that spans between human origins and present day. The singular drop doubly represents the primordial moment when water first brought forth life and a raindrop falling in the present.

Also on view will be Zhang’s Flowing Water and New Calligraphy monoprints as well as his China Chapter silicone rubber sculptures, cast from ancient ceramic vessels dating to the Han, Tang, and Song Dynasties.

Jian-Jun Zhang was born in Shanghai, China. He graduated from the Shanghai Drama Institute in 1978. Recent museum exhibitions include Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Portrait of the Times: 30 Years of Chinese Contemporary Art, Power Station of Art, Shanghai and Shanshui, Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland. His work appears in major collections including the Brooklyn Museum, New York; Guangdong Museum of Art, China; Shanghai Art Museum, China; Yuz Museum, Shanghai, China; Zhang is a professor at New York University, Shanghai and lives and works in both Shanghai and New York City.
