Level 1, 151 Castlereagh Street, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Featuring 40 works by 18 young Chinese artists and media ranging from sculpture to drawing, ink on paper and silk, to oil paintings, the exhibition will be a stunning survey of contemporary Chinese life as seen through the eyes of the young. Viewers will gain an understanding of the place of contemporary art in Chinese life and a sense of the continual changes that are present in the times in which they live.
Due to rapid social and economic development in China, “change” has become a prominent feature of social and artistic commentary in China, and this is evident in this exhibition. Some of the artists use their surroundings and social life as the subject for their work, expressing changes in everyday life in artistic ways. This is a notable step away from the traditional and ancient traditional artforms Australian audiences may expect from Chinese artists.
This outstanding exhibition has been curated by Mr Zhao Li, who also curated the China Pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and represents influences on artists addresses an array of important themes such as historic traditions, life experiences, scientific development and environmental concerns. Silent Poetry: Chinese Contemporary Art Exhibition will communicate to an Australian audience the important effect that contemporary art practice has on life in China.
