Changing view of ink
Eleven post-80s and post-70s artists adopt traditional Chinese typical ink-and-wash painting as their language to illustrate contemporary art in the exhibition Changing View, organized by Dandeli Art Center. Instead of traditional themes, paintings reflect their contemporary aesthetic and values, trying to offer a peek at how Chinese ink-and-wash would be employed in the future.
