"Half-truth," the New York debut of Lu Zhengyuan at Eli Klein [through Oct. 21], features just seven works that encompass painting, sculpture and photography. Lu consistently resists adopting a signature style, but maintains that the works should be individually "good-looking"—that is, visually and conceptually intriguing, though "not necessarily esthetically pleasing"—so that viewers will be enticed to look beyond their surfaces.
