This exhibition will show the largest selection of contemporary Chinese works on paper outside of China. It explores the rich diversity of contemporary practice in Chinese drawing, printing and painting on paper in the 21st Century.
Chinese calligraphy developed during the Han Dynasty of 206 BC – 220 AD, while traditional Chinese painting followed soon after. Both techniques employ the same methods and are carried out with a brush dipped in black ink. Today, artists work in a variety of inks, paint and printing techniques.
With 72 artists and more than 100 artworks, visitors can explore a diverse range of pictures.
Curated by Zhang Xing, Robert Priseman and Marco Cali.
For a special insight into the exhibition, come to our Curator’s Introduction on 2 May, where internationally acclaimed print maker Li Wang will be your guide.
