Los Angeles / Quentin Shih, Familiars
Galerie XII Los Angeles is pleased to announce our Fall exhibition with the US debut of Beijing-based artist Quentin Shih’s dramatic new series Familiars. As one of the leading Chinese photographers of his generation, Shih is internationally recognized for his individual artistic style utilizing vast spaces and dramatic color to create emotionally engaging narratives. The installation will feature a curated selection of large-format prints from the series accompanied by a new monograph.
Taulé, Foundation Palau, June 22, 2019 to January, 31, 2020
The exhibition brings together some 65 works representing the "imaginary museum" of the artist, pieces painted in tribute to his masters - Munch, Malevitch, El Greco, Picasso, etc. - in a very personal verve close to surrealism.
