Western artists encountering Chinese culture today, do so under very different circumstances than their seventeenth and eighteenth century counterparts. Less a country shrouded in mystery, Westerners now have a greater understanding of China’s long and varied cultural traditions and systems of belief.
This exhibition focuses on the work of a number of Tasmanian artists who have engaged with aspects of Chinese culture, and who, through such an encounter, have created works productive of new insights into their own culture as well as into contemporary issues more broadly.
