For the better part of their lives Henk de Heus and his wife Victoria de Heus-Zomer have worked to build up their business. The De Heus animal feed company has a hundred year history but it wasn’t until the last couple of decades that the family business from rural Barneveld boomed, becoming a world leader in animal nutrition, a multinational active in fifty countries. The de Heus-Zomer couple has invested a sizeable part of the resulting fortune in art. Since the late eighties they have col... [more]

Blue is the dominant colour of Zhang Dali’s new series of photograms and cyanotypes, framing the shadowed forms cast upon them. These large-scale photographic impressions on cloth present figures, bicycles and pagodas, in negative; the surroundings are left in the rich cyan blue, verging on indigo. These “material objects” (as Zhang refers to them) leave their marks as absence and adjust our received impressions of them, reversing the shadow’s fleeting aspect to permanently fix and memorialize them.

A few days after the opening of “Re-Visioning History,” police walked in to the OV Gallery in Shanghai, confiscated the catalogues, and shut down the show.  In the words of director Rebecca Catching, the show interrogates China’s habit of “both fetishizing history and obliterating it at the same time.” At the crux of this show is Zhang Dali’s archival project, A Second History. Using his painter’s eye, Zhang scoured  relics of Chinese political and popular history for photographs t... [more]

I love the juxtaposition between brutal China and compassionate China, government and people, tradition and modernity, rulers and artists: the free. With the division between activists for Tibet and fans of the Olympics, it makes Dialogue China: Part One at the Elins Eagles Smith Gallery all that much more apropos, all that much more necessary. It is the depiction and dreams of Chinese intellectuals. The exhibit examines life in contemporary China long after the cultural revolution, the mixture... [more]
