In February 2020, Zao Wou-Ki would have been one hundred years old. Some events accompanying this centenary have had to be canceled or postponed due to the global pandemic, such as the major retrospective of the Hangzhou School of Fine Arts in China, now scheduled for November 2021.

Fortunately, certain events linked to this centenary have been brought to an end.

Covid-19 epidemic has unfortunately forced most of French and European museums to close their doors for an indefinite period.
Many works by Zao Wou-Ki were exhibited on their walls and we propose that you visit them through photos or thanks to virtual tours when it is possible.

The Foundation

The Zao Wou-Ki Foundation works to promote the life and art of the painter Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013).

Through its work, the Foundation honors the artist, safeguards his art and provides education to ensure the transmission of his creative vision to a younger generation.
