A comprehensive survey exhibition of the progress of modern Chinese art will be unfolded at Beijing Minsheng Art Museum on July 8, gathering works of quality and rarity by luminaries from the late 19th century throughout the 20th century.

The show is to unveil a panoramic landscape of how those great artists endeavor to reform the face of ink art in times of difficulties, by which they sought to preserve and invigorate the Chinese cultural traditions.

The exhibition will feature museum collections of importance, guiding the audience to the perspectives of Qi Baishi, Zhang Daqian, Li Keran, Pan Tianshou and Wu Guanzhong, to name a few, through which people will see the crisis of ink traditions amid the country's ups and downs and the increasing popularity of foreign art. And they will see the unprecedented efforts of these figures, advancing in one generation after another, to embrace the changing needs of time and to bridge the East and West.

Embarking on this time-travel journey of art, exhibition curators hope to engage viewers in a discussion about the future of Chinese art and culture, on further upholding the experimental spirit of the masters.
