Wang Lintong – The Visible Thoughts @ Art Labor


Art Labor Gallery presents artist Wang Lintong's long-anticipated debut solo exhibition in Shanghai. Immeasurable shades of white, grey, and black are the first and immediate impression one would have when viewing Wang Lintong's work for the very first time.

His monochrome paintings, primarily the 'white' paintings, with their subtlety of expression and appearance allure the audience to approach and observe from a closer distance. The simplicity of tone strips all unnecessary information from the work, bringing the focus solely onto the imagery, the concept, and the message in each work.
Until Sep 30; Private view by appointment. Art Labor, 101 Haifang Lu, by Changhua Lu 海防路101号, 近昌化路.
