Founding Directors Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt comment: 

“RAW will present a breathtaking new body of work by Zhuang Hong Yi, and is particularly exciting as it will be Zhuang’s first solo show here in the UK. Zhuang is an internationally renowned and critically acclaimed artist, and the scale of this exhibition is unlike anything we have previously staged. RAW will present some of Zhuang’s finest work to date, and reflects Unit London’s fearless ambition to showcase and celebrate the finest international talent here in the heart of London.”
