Professor Zhijian Qian writes:

In the recent worldwide resurgence of abstract art, Chinese artists are making their unique contribution with works inspired by the tradition of Chinese ink painting and calligraphy. Their exploration of new possibilities of abstraction is part of a global endeavor to revive and redefine abstract art. This presentation discusses the achievements of a group of contemporary Chinese artists who investigate such approaches as Calligraphic and Linear Abstraction, Gestural and Performative Abstraction, Textural Abstraction, Conceptual Abstraction, and Lyrical Abstraction.

All Welcome.
