Women's art

The He Xiangning and China Women Artists Association exhibition, held at the He Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, introduces the cultural scene in early 20th-century China and a booming art movement promoted by female painters at the time. The exhibition that runs through Nov 21 shows how a group of well-educated, art-loving women used art to express themselves, to demonstrate their pursuit of freedom, and to address social concerns. On show are 12 noted artists from different backgrounds who are placed in three categories: their experiences, art styles and life goals. He Xiangning and Yu Feng, who were reformers and social activists, have been included in one group. Their art promotes social reform and national progress. Another group consists of women who came from well-to-do families and were versatile artists. They practiced art as a means of leading a self-made life, pursuing a new identity as educated women with social status. The third group is that of women who were trained in both classical Chinese painting and Western art-some even studied and lived abroad for a time-and they worked to bridge Chinese and Western cultures as they wanted to bring a new look to the home culture.

9 am-5 pm, Tue-Sun. 9013 Shennan Dadao, Nanshan district, Shenzhen, Guangdong province.0755-2660-4540, 2691-8118.
