Celebrating 28 Years of Promoting Traditional Contemporary Chinese Art in New York City and Around the World
As we celebrate our 28th years of promoting contemporary Chinese art, our tradition continues in building treasured collections for individuals, corporations and museums worldwide.
Since its founding in 1993, the Elizabeth Wang Gallery has established itself as the primary source for many of China's most celebrated contemporary artists. We pride ourselves in our exclusive relationships with many of these important artists, and to working with collectors to provide access to their unique artworks.
Our tradition of excellence includes several special exhibitions. One of particular note was the retrospective exhibition of the "Aquarelles de Chen Chi", commemorating the World Cultural Summit at the Palace of Versailles, France. This was the first exhibition of a living Chinese artist at Versailles. The collection continues to be displayed at the Chen Chi Art Museum in Shanghai.
The Elizabeth Wang Gallery also collaborates with leading museums and institutions around the world to introduce the finest contemporary Chinese artists to their patrons. Several examples were the exhibition of the "Landscape of Memory: The Art of Mu Xin" at the Yale University Art Gallery, the David Alfred Smart Museum of Art, the Honolulu Academy of Arts and the Asia Society Museum.
In 2004, the Elizabeth Wang Gallery was honored to participate at the World Economic Forum - China Business Summit in Beijing. The highlights of this event was the Mu Xin's art exhibition and the special dispaly of 32 "Rare Birds of China" at the Gala Dinner at the Great Hall of the People in Tiananmen Square.
On the occasion of our 10th Anniversary Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg congratulated the Elizabeth Wang Gallery for its "Tremendous contribution in bringing modern Chinese art to the City and to helping make New York City the Cultural Capital of the World".
We are proud that many of our artists have gained their internaitonal recognition and fame, scuh as Xinle Ma who lead 16 top artists from Chinese Artsits Assocation at the National Arts Club in New York, Zhiyuan Cong with his "Beyond East and West" ehibition at the United Nations, and Ellen Qiongzhao Schicktanz bringing American historic artworks and sculptures to the Federal Hall in Wall Street.
The Elizabeth Wang Gallery continues its commitment to provide the finest contemporary Chinese art to the global community and thereby to contribute to a world of beauty, harmony and peace in the 21st century.
"On behalf of the City of New York, I am pleased to recognize Ms. Wang for contributing so much to our great City for the past 10 years."
"New York City's cultural life is energized by its diversity and I commend you for the tremendous contributions you have made to bring modern Chinese artwork to all our City's residents."
"It is always a pleasure to unite with people that share my commitment to the arts and maintaining New York City as the Cultural Capital of the World."
