West Bund Art & Design

West Bund Art Center, Shanghai 11-14 November 2021 Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to participate in the 2021 edition of West Bund Art & Design with a selection of works by Miquel Barceló, Georg Baselitz, Mandy El-Sayegh, Alex Katz, Lee Bul, Jason Martin, Yan Pei-Ming, Robert Rauschenberg, Emilio Vedova and Erwin Wurm. 

Representing over 60 artists, including many world-renowned names as well as major artist’s estates, Thaddaeus Ropac has five spaces in Europe and operates globally. The gallery has recently expanded to Asia with a new Seoul location opened on 6 October 2021, led by Executive Director Kyu Jin Huang. 

Its continued expansion in Asia reflects the gallery’s commitment to bringing its artists to new audiences and deepening meaningful relationships with artists, collectors and institutions across Asia, in the lead up to major exhibitions which are planned for this coming year and beyond. 

Dawn Zhu, newly appointed Director for Asia comments, ‘We are delighted to return to the West Bund Art & Design, with highlight works by Georg Baselitz, whose solo exhibition is currently on show at our Seoul gallery; Robert Rauschenberg’s late 80s work from one of his most experimental and innovative series; Alex Katz’s portraiture of supermodel Christy Turlington, painted with his iconic line and flat fields of vibrant colours; as well as new works by emerging female artist Mandy El-Sayegh. This is my first art fair after joining the gallery and I look forward to welcoming our clients in person.’
