Carlton Fine Arts Ltd. Presents “Asian Art SPA”, by Artist, Linjie Dengfrom Lauren Stiffelman
Opening Monday, March 29th , the show features a selection of works by Deng inspired by the Asian Violence in America
Carlton Fine Arts Ltd. is pleased to present a new exhibition of works by conceptual Chinese artist, Linjie Deng, titled Asian Art SPA, due to popular demand after his “Lost Museum“ exhibition sold out. The works will be showcased alongside a curated set of works by Keith Haring, Marc Chagall, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Mr. Brainwash. Asian Art SPA will be on display beginning Monday, March 29 through April 29 at Carlton Fine Arts Ltd. location at 543 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022.
Asian Art SPA features different works, which Deng created after he was attacked at a New York subway station at 86th street. These works include I am White, Black and Asian, I don’t like the way he looked at me either, and 8 Deadly Shots. The proceeds from these works will be donated to Think! Chinatown, a non-profit whose mission is to foster inter-generational community through neighborhood engagement, storytelling & the arts.
Other works will include his Yin-Yang Series, a selection of contemporary calligraphy works consisting of a set of mutually opposing and coexisting words: freedom and hope, you and me, me and we, proud and humble. The Teeth Falling Out series will also be spotlighted with works including The Tooth, Water, Sunshine, Soil, and Leaves. Deng has chosen five basic elements of life and painted them individually, aiming to magnify the small and potentially invisible visual characteristics of each.
Hours: Mondays - Thursdays: 10 AM - 6 PM; Fridays: 10 AM - 4 PM; Saturdays: Closed; Sundays: 11 AM - 6 PM and by appointment.
For those interested in checking out the exhibition outside of open hours, appointments can be scheduled by calling 212-593-2800 or email: [email protected] Visit http://carltonfa.com/ and https://www.linjiedeng.com/
