ART HONG KONG
Organised by ART HONG KONG
The historical development of Chinese art is anchored to the inimitable force of tradition. Its vitality, however, is hinged upon innovation. Over the course of history, artists have engaged in dialogues with tradition while insisting on constant innovation, and upheld Chinese cultures while seeking inspiration from foreign artistic accomplishments. This has led to singular achievements in each distinct period in Chinese art. It is the many exceptional characteristics of each unique era that constitute the shimmering resplendent waves in the long tides in Chinese art history.
This exhibition is a dialogue between contemporary art and traditional culture and a conversation between Chinese tradition and Western art. The works by six modern Chinese masters and eight contemporary Chinese artists utilise different perspectives in their interpretation of the dialectical relationship between “tradition” and the “avant-garde”. By employing varied forms of expression to interpret the connection between ancient art and contemporary society, the works shine new light on timeless classics in diverse contemporary styles.
