de Sarthe is delighted to announce its participation in the 2019 edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, which will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 27 to 31 March 2019.
de Sarthe has participated at Art Basel Hong Kong since its inception and for the 7th edition in 2019 will present an engaging selection of Western and Asian art that reflects the 40 year history of the gallery in Europe and Asia.
One of the longest standing international galleries in Hong Kong, de Sarthe's booth at Art Basel Hong Kong explores the implications of creative exchange between Western and Eastern visual languages, exhibiting artists that redefined the avant-garde through aesthetic innovation that pushed and re-evaluated creative boundaries. The booth also offers insights into the gallery's history and its support of innovative and experimental artists who are historically significant.
Charting the gallery's development in Hong Kong, the booth includes de Sarthe's first generation of Modern and Post-War Masters: the contrasting colours and lyrical abstraction of French-Chinese painters Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun, alongside prolific and stylistically varied paintings by Gerhard Richter, and works by celebrated conceptual artist Bernar Venet.
The exhibition also reflects the gallery's recent progression and its support of the new wave of emerging Chinese artists such as Lin Jingjing, Andrew Luk, and Ma Sibo.
