Qu Leilei: A Chinese Artist in Britain

7 Nov 2017 to 15 Apr 2018

Contemporary Chinese artist Qu Leilei (b. 1951) was a founding member of the avant-garde 'Stars Group' in the late 1970s, and immigrated to England in 1985.

This exhibition shows his progression from calligraphic collage to an exploration of a new vocabulary of ink language blending lively brushwork with western technique.
