David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the Chinese artist Liu Ye. The show marks the artist’s debut solo presentation with the gallery.

Liu Ye is known for deeply meditative paintings that investigate ways of seeing in their nuanced approach to the painted image. His carefully balanced, methodical compositions subtly combine figuration and abstraction and reference a diverse range of aesthetic, literary, art historical, and cultural sources, resulting in works that appear to transcend time and place in their evocation of distinct conceptual and emotional registers of meaning. On view will be a selection of new works from the artist’s Flower, Book, and Banned Book series, which together demonstrate the artist’s singular approach to painting.

Exhibition Date: October 29, 2020 - December 19, 2020 

The galleries are open to the public with a limited number of visitors allowed into the exhibition spaces at a time, in accordance with city guidelines.

Advance appointments are recommended but not required.
