True Color of Ink, an exhibition currently on at Beijing's Taimiao (the imperial ancestral temple), has more than 100 contemporary ink paintings of 20 established artists on display.

The works re-interpret ink traditions from a modern perspective and take the studies of ink art to a higher level, says Fan Di'an, head of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, who co-curates the exhibition.

The exhibition is the third and final cooperation for the year between the temple administration and the art academy. The two institutions established a long-term framework of cooperation under which two to three art shows are held in the temple’s halls every year.

The previous two exhibitions presented China's 20th century figurative paintings from the collection of the CAFA art museum and paintings based on grasslands by artists from China and Mongolia.

The exhibition runs through Dec 10.
