Returning to Hong Kong after his last major solo exhibition “Enlightened Blackness: Ink Paintings by Yang Jiechang” at the University Museum and Art Gallery, University of Hong Kong in 2001, the new solo show “Good Morning Hong Kong” at the Hong Kong Central Library will feature his most recent works. Through this exhibition, Yang wishes to bring positivity to Hong Kong, because he believes “we live in a time of conflict and unpredictable change, where feelings of insecurity and disorientation prevail”.
Present Since his landmark exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Yang has lived and worked in Paris, producing an oeuvre that varies in style, medium and inspirations. He has had numerous major exhibitions across China, Europe and the North America. Most recently, 100 Layers of Ink paintings were showcased at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in the exhibition “Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China”.
