This exhibition presents a diverse selection of Chinese contemporary artists whose practices are informed by their cultural heritage. Re-working traditional aesthetics in conceptual ways, featured artists use new forms and media–such as digital animations and site–specific installations–to provide a myriad of means to understand and examine tradition's influence on visual culture in present–day China.

Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Diana Freundl, Assistant Curator.
