How has contemporary Chinese art been evolving over the past decade? The answer will be found at a contemporary ink exhibition that opens on June 1, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The week-long exhibition will show some 300 paintings of 98 Chinese artists who explore the diversity ink traditions in a modern context.
The exhibition is organized by the Nanjing-based Bajia Lake International Culture Investment Group. It will be part of a series of celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
He Guiyan, the exhibition curator, says Hong Kong played a significant role in introducing contemporary Chinese art and artists to the world in the early 1990s, and remains a dominant player in the global art market today.
He says the exhibition will present how artists today respond to globalization and show a much more diverse picture of contemporary Chinese art.
