On the occasion of Asia Week New York, Gagosian is presenting “Treasures from the Chinese Past,” in a special collaboration with Gisèle Croës Gallery. Croës, whose gallery in Belgium has a world-renowned reputation as an authority on ancient Chinese art, has selected forty outstanding works in bronze for this exhibition, ranging from the sixteenth century BC onward. In conversation with these antiquities are works by three contemporary artists. Three 2015 drawings by Richard Serra, Ramble 4-21, Ramble 4-23, and Ramble 4-34; an Anish Kapoor sculpture, Syphon Mirror-Kon, from 2005, made of lacquered synthetic wood; and Roy Lichtenstein’s Screen with Brushstrokes (1986) offset the solidity of Croës’s antiquities.
