Encompassing the past 20 years of Zhang Huan's career, the exhibition will explore themes of Buddhism, existentialism and the limits of the human body that have been central to his artistic practice since 1994.

Chuck Close's exhibit, opening tomorrow at Pace, will include the first presentation of his newest experiment with technology: watercolor prints.

“Invention,” Robert Storr writes, “plays a pivotal part in the fundamental dynamics of Close’s work but not in the sense of contriving an unprecedented pictorial or conceptual model. Instead his pragmatism or, better said, innovative empiricism, is aimed at devising previously untested ways of filtering and organizing the data he observes in nature, initially captures photographically, and seeks to transpose by other means onto a two-dimensional surface.”

Zhang Huan’s SEMELE opera opened Wednesday night at The Canadian Opera Company in Toronto. Handel’s most sensuous opera unfolds amidst Zhang Huan’s astonishing and provocatively playful stage direction. East truly meets west in this unique production blending the Greek myth of Semele with the contemporary true story of an ill-fated Chinese love triangle, all set within the walls of an actual 450-year old Ming Dynasty temple. Jane Archibald and and Allyson McHardy, both 2012 Juno Award nominees, star in this must-see theatrical extravaganza!
