Call for a Renaissance gathers a selection of 24 artworks from Gao Zingjian’s private collection, all of them ink on canvas, big and medium format and from 1998 to 2013. Gao Xingjian’s paintings are born from a personal cultural fusion between East and West. His painting is characterized by the dominant use of materials of Chinese tradition –rice paper, ink and Chinese brushes– but the technique is uniquely modern. From his studies of modern West art, Gao has always appreciated the importance of the physical act of paint, the inquiry in pictorial matter and specially the autonomy in pictorial language.
Call for a Renaissance will be at Sala Kubo – Kutxa from October 16th to January 3rd 2016.
