Description

Closed Mon & Tues through 9/21, then only closed Tues.
The landscape, the most prominent painting tradition in China, brings with it more than one thousand years’ worth of precedent and often has evolved in tandem with the social changes facing practicing Chinese artists. The genre continues to be mined by contemporary artists as a means to explore cultural heritage and to represent current transformations—to China’s landscapes, cityscapes, society, and culture. This exhibition of 15 works showcases Chinese artists who look both to their immediate environment and to the landscapes of China’s past in their interpretations and provocations. A variety of media—ink on paper, oil painting, and photography—are on display.
