This exhibition explores the history of abstract painting, and its ties to the future. Beginning around the time of abstract painting’s birth, it presents abstraction’s rise, the trends that flourished in French painting, before and after WW2, as well as the resulting divergence of Hot Abstraction and Abstract Expressionism. It also delves into its simultaneous emergence in Japan through the Jikken Kobo (Experimental Workshop), Gutai, and other movements.

ABSTRACTION also gives an opportunity to explore the multifaceted development of abstract painting and its ties to Lou Zhenggang’s works (Size of art work: Height 194cm Width810cm) as one of its flagbearers in the new generation. (Source: https://www.artizon.museum/en/exhibition/detail/565)
