"Tradition" is the word on everyone's lips at an ongoing exhibition at the Song Art Museum in Beijing.

But for those who think of museums as places for dusty old relics, not to worry. It's not an ancient or abstract exhibit.

With 96 artworks – spanning painting, calligraphy, sculpture, installation, and new media art – by 45 modern and contemporary Chinese artists, The Revival of Tradition aims to "show how tradition has served as a fertile source of inspiration for contemporary artists," said He Guiyan, the show's curator and an art critic.
