    About:
    Zhao Gang (b. 1961, Beijing) made his artistic debut as a member of the Stars Group, one of the first avant-garde artist
    groups to open the era of contemporary art in China, when he was just 18 years old. Shortly thereafter he pursued formal
    art education in Europe then New York, where he lived for over two decades, developing a diverse body of work as his
    perspective became distinctively international. Over the course of his wanderings, Zhao Gang has been featured alongside
    prominent Chinese painters Liu Wei and David Diao; participated in PERFORMA, the Guangzhou Triennial, and the
    Yokohama Triennial. His recent solo exhibitions include UCCA, Suzhou Museum, and an upcoming exhibition at Christian
    Nagel Gallery, Berlin. Zhao’s recent work focuses on the entanglement of his personal past with Chinese history through
    his unique position as native and newcomer.
    Education:
    1984    VASSAR College and graduated from New York, United States
