This art exhibition features representative artists from China who interpret traditional Chinese values in the most innovative ways. Three spiritual systems: Buddhist, Confucian, and Taoist beliefs and values are deeply embedded in Chinese art. In the past one and-a-half centuries, Chinese artists have been exploring innovative and creative ways to reinterpret Chinese tradition while interacting with the outside world. The featured artists in this exhibition are well versed in both traditional Chinese aesthetics and Western modern art vocabulary, and they are committed to effective communications and mutual appreciation between the East and the West.
