Curated by Dr Sophie McIntyre.
“Contemporary ink art has emerged as one of the most significant and ubiquitous artistic trends in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and over the past decade has attracted increasing attention from the media and the international art community. Acclaimed as ‘the new Chinese art’, some of the world’s most prominent museums and galleries, including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Saatchi Gallery in London, have staged major survey exhibitions of ink art.
In a diverse range of 35 works by 14 artists, INK REMIX: Contemporary Art from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong reveals the ongoing centrality of ink in contemporary Chinese art. Curated by renowned contemporary Chinese art scholar Dr Sophie McIntyre and presented in partnership with the Canberra Museum and Gallery, the exhibition includes video and installation works by high-profile artists including Chen Shaoxiong ( 陈劭 雄 ), Feng Mengbo (冯 梦 波), He Xiangyu (何 翔 宇), Hung Keung ( 洪 強 ), Cindy Ng Sio Ieng ( 吴 少英), Ni Youyu (倪 有鱼), Pan Hsin-hua ( 潘 信 華), Peng Hung-chih ( 彭泓智), Peng Wei ( 彭 薇 ), Qiu Zhijie (邱志杰), Wilson Shieh (石 家豪), Charwei Tsai (蔡 佳 葳 ), Yang Yongliang (杨 泳 梁) and Yao Jui-chung ( 姚 瑞 中).” *
