HONG KONG.- Gagosian announced the appointment of Han-I Wang as Senior Director, based in Hong Kong. With her deep expertise in modern and contemporary art, Han-I Wang will be integrally involved in the gallery’s exhibition program and participation in Asian and global art fairs. She will further develop Gagosian’s extensive network of private and public clients across Asia. Han-I joins Managing Director Nick Simunovic who has led Gagosian’s activities in Asia since 2007.

Previously, Han-I served as Vice President and Specialist in the Post-War and Contemporary Art department of Christie’s New York and Hong Kong. There, she developed a keen awareness of the unique characteristics of the Asian market and worked closely with collectors across the entire Asia-Pacific region. Among many achievements, she played a key role in establishing the inaugural Contemporaries sale as well as mounting the highly anticipated "Loaded Brush" private selling exhibition in Hong Kong.

Born in Taiwan and educated in the United States, Han-I completed a doctorate in piano at the Manhattan School of Music and, subsequently, an MA with Christie’s Education in New York.

“We are thrilled to have Han-I join our team” said Nick Simunovic. “I have been hugely impressed by her drive, energy and enthusiasm, as well as her strong reputation with collectors and the broader art community in Asia. With her diverse cultural background and her profound knowledge of both Eastern and Western art traditions, Han-I is uniquely positioned to add a dynamic new dimension to Gagosian’s activities in Asia.”

“I am excited to join Gagosian, a prestigious international gallery with an unparalleled program featuring many of the world’s most important artists and estates,” said Wang. “It is a pivotal moment for Asia, and as the rapid growth of the past decade continues to accelerate, I look forward to working with a visionary leader and expert global organization to further develop Gagosian's presence in the region.”
