Home is where the art is

Emigration and immigration have become quite normal for modern Chinese. However, the question "where are you from?" has become a somewhat complicated for many people, as the cultures of their native homes and of their immigration destinations blend to form new identities. This mental state is central to a new exhibition, Where I'm Coming From, at Xiamen Powerlong Art Center in Xiamen, Fujian province. It showcases ink paintings by 38 artists. The exhibition arouses feelings of "home". It examines the mental shift of individuals when they move, as well as their relationships with family, society and country.

11 am-7 pm, Monday to Thursday, 11 am-8 pm, Friday to Sunday. Through Oct 31. Powerlong Art Center, 1 Jinshan Road, Siming district, Xiamen, Fujian province. 0592-553-7833.
