China: The Great Wall in Ruins. Photographs by Yang Yueluan
Exhibition: January 6-31, 2017 at Ars Libri Ltd. 500 Harrison Avenue Boston
Monday-Friday 9-6, Saturday 11-5

Opening reception 5:30-7:30pm Friday, Jan. 6, 2017 (part of SoWa First Fridays)

Yang Yueluan's photographic work addresses the rich complexities of the Great Wall with its powerful representations of its ruined sites. Yang's photographs depart from conventional representations of the Great Wall that depict the subject in scenic views. Instead, he chooses to focus on decaying, deteriorating sites which are beyond the reach of the government's preservation measures.

In 2012, Robert Klein Gallery and Ars Libri began a long-term collaboration to mount exhibitions and, with their combined expertise, identify and present new artists to the international market. The Robert Klein Gallery will host satellite photography installations at our space at 500 Harrison Ave.
The Robert Klein Gallery will continue to hold regular exhibitions at 38 Newbury Street; installations at Ars Libri will supplement their shows with additional works and printed material. New installations at Ars Libri will open during the First Friday event each month.
