Hong Kong.- With the support of the University of Hong Kong Museum Society, the University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong and the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Lalan as part of the “Le French May” programme 2011. “Dance Melodies in Colours: Paintings by Lalan” is on view from 25th May until 10th July. Lalan’s artistic career was a rich and multi-faceted one that included her work as a painter, composer, dancer, choreographer and poet.  Having lived in France for almost fifty years, her artworks reflect the dual influences of both China and France.  This retrospective exhibition presents Lalan’s works from the 1960s to the 1990s drawn from the collections of her son Zhao Jialing and a private collector Jean-Michel Beurdeley.
