A new exhibition by Chinese artist Yang Yongliang will be shown at Galerie Paris-Beijing next month. Shanghai-born Yang began with traditional Chinese calligraphy during his formative years before experimenting with photographic collage. His latest work presents a hazy tableau of cityscapes expressing Shanghai’s uncompromising urbanization. Despite the emphatically modern subject matter, the technique remains true to the canon of Chinese artistic tradition—particularly the 5th-century Shan shui style of painting.

Mar. 14 to Apr. 27. 54, Rue du Vertobis, Paris; 33-1/4274-3236.
