A Quest for Healing


Surgeons’ Hall Museums is delighted to welcome the contemporary Chinese artist Zhang Yanzi, who will be exhibiting from April 27 to November 4. Zhang Yanzi uses diverse materials to explore themes of medicine and healing, and was the subject of a two-month solo show at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences in 2016. In her native China, she is the editor of CAFA Art Info at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing; her art may be seen at the National Art Museum of China and the Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum among others. Zhang Yanzi visited the Surgeons’ Hall Museums last summer and will be showing creations inspired by her time here at the museum.


Simultaneously, an exhibition of Zhang Yanzi’s work is being shown at the Museum of East Asian Art in Bath, entitled: “A Quest for Wellness: Contemporary Chinese Art by Zhang Yanzi.”
