Rodri guez has become a Grammy-nominee with three critically acclaimed releases. Over the years, Rodri guez's worldwide tours have shaped his diverse global point of view. "I believe people are more similar than different. We live in a time where we have so many ways to inform ourselves, and yet some places - and people - choose to remain isolated.

Abstraction as Painterly Rhetoric: A Case Study Between Germany and China

Date: July 28-Sept 2 - 10 am

Venue: PIFO New Art Gallery, Beijing

PIFO Gallery is delighted to present the annual exhibition Abstract Art already in its 11th iteration. This year the gallery brings together artists from China and Germany. Germany has an extraordinarily strong tradition in painterly abstraction, since its founding moment after 1945, leading up to the founding of documenta, Kassel and beyond. Consequently artists from Germany have been a source of reference for many Chinese artists. The highly influential artist Tan Ping studied in Germany in the early 1990. His paintings are juxtaposed with works by Bernard Schultze and Karl Fred Dahmen, who are to be found in all major museums and private collections in Germany. PIFO Gallery is proud to be the first gallery to present their paintings in China. In essence, the exhibition can be understood as a pilot of sorts for an ongoing investigation into abstraction as contemporary artistic practice on a global scale.
