In case you missed Thursday’s opening, here are a few photos from Chinese artist Zhang Xiaogang’s new show at Pace Gallery. Curated by Pace’s Arne Glimcher, the show features Zhang Xiaogang’s first series of painted bronzes, which render in three dimensions the prototypical characters who inhabit his paintings. From the artist’s friends and family to Chuck Close, many attended the artist’s packed opening reception.
