Contemporary Chinese ink paintings are a re-interpretation of a millennium old art form. Christie’s exhibition titled Visions of the Present: Chinese Contemporary Ink features 54 works of art from 19 leading Chinese artists, and explores the way they’re making their ink paintings relevant to modernity, multiculturalism, and technology.
The exhibition is an interesting way to see how the old tradition of ink painting is made new within the context of modern Chinese art.
