Hanart TZ Gallery has been a pioneer in exploring the Chinese cultural map for over 30 years, and has represented and worked with numerous artists now internationally prominent. The Gallery opened in November in 1983 with the mission of introducing new Chinese contemporary art both to the Asia region and internationally. The Gallery soon became a magnet for both established and emerging artists from the Greater China areas of Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, as well as the international diaspora. As such the Gallery has served as a significant link with the international art world; its role in landmark exhibitions, such as The Stars 10 Years (1989) and China’s New Art Post-1989 (1993, toured until 1998), and Power of the Word (1999, toured until 2002) are iconic.

Other significant shows that Hanart TZ Gallery has organized include: international exhibitions of monumental sculptures by the celebrated Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming at South Bank Centre in London (1991), Place Vendome in Paris (1997-1998) and Brandenburg Gate in Berlin (2003); A Strange Heaven, Photography from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong (Europe tour, 2003); Liu Guosong (Liu Kuo-sung) solo exhibition at the Palace Museum, Beijing (2007); and Zhang Xiaogang, Fang Lijun, Feng Mengbo joint exhibition at Galerie Rudolfinum, Prague (2008). In 2010, the Gallery opened a new exhibition space, Hanart Square, for featuring shows of experimental art and installations.

It is our belief that publication and intellectual discourse are critical to encouraging creativity and disseminating information, and over the years the Gallery has worked with many writers and curators, and has produced over a hundred catalogues. In 2015, Hanart TZ Gallery published a major book, 3 Parallel Artworlds: 100 Art Things from Chinese Modern History, featuring texts by fourteen international scholars and interpretations of one hundred Chinese artworks from the past century. In recent years the Gallery has extended its focus to building links and exchanges with artists and scholars of the Pan-Asia region.
