Event Details

Leading Chinese sculptor Zhan Wang is this year’s Tourism Western Australia Invited Artist for Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2018. 

You are invited to hear Zhan Wang discuss his site specifc work for Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe and a selection of his significant international exhibitions and public commissions.

Zhan Wang is one of China’s leading contemporary artists who has exhibited across the globe. Born in Beijing, Zhan Wang graduated in 1996 from the sculpture department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA). He currently lives and works in Beijing where he teaches sculpture at CAFA. Zhan Wang produces sculptures and installations that are both boldly physical and enticingly conceptual. In 1995 he began work on one of his most celebrated projects ‘Artificial Rocks’ which is his attempt to simulate the most representative natural objects for which he chose the Taihu stone, commonly seen in classical Chinese gardens copying their exterior form in stainless steel. 

Zhan Wang’s artworks continue to be collected and favoured by many important Chinese and overseas museums and public institutions including the National Museum of China, the British Museum, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Cantor Arts Centre at Stanford University, the National Museum of Scotland, the Mori Art Museum, Busan Museum of Modern Art, the Shiodome Museum in Tokyo and the Gibbs Farm Collection in New Zealand.
