Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China
Open through April 6, 2014
Featuring 70 works in various media created during the past three decades by 35 artists born in China, this exhibition reveals how China’s ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path. Organized into four groupings—the written word, new landscapes, abstraction, and beyond the brush—it demonstrates how select artists have radically transformed their sources through new modes of expression while retaining thematic, aesthetic, or technical attributes that link them to China’s artistic past.
