墨境 Ink Worlds: Contemporary Chinese Painting from the Collection of Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang
May 23, 2018–September 3, 2018
FINAL WEEKS: CLOSES SEPT 3
Ink Worlds considers ink painting from the 1960s through the present, examining salient visual features and international connections, as well as the ongoing impact of historical techniques, materials, and themes. In so doing, the exhibition addresses not only the capacity of ink painting to evolve but also the contemporary nature of ink painting as a distinct genre whose achievements can already be documented.
Catalogue Available $55.00 / $50.00 members
Films by Britta Erickson from the series The Enduring Passion for Ink feature artists Xu Bing, Zheng Chongbin, Liu Dan, Wang Dongling, and Yang Jiechang, whose work is included in the 墨境 Ink Worlds exhibition. Each screening will feature all the artists.
