INK REMIX: Contemporary art from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Ink Remix is the first exhibition in Australia to explore the exciting new developments in ink art, which has emerged as one of the most important artistic trends from Asia in recent years. While the art form is commonly associated with traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, this ancient practice is having a resurgence as young artists rediscover their voice and the art of ink.
Ink Remix explores how these artists are thinking about ink as a contemporary, dynamic and diverse form of visual expression, and what it means to contemporary society.
The exhibition features the work of 14 established and emerging artists from the region, who are pushing the boundaries of this practice. In a multilingual experience, explore a wide range of media including painting, photography ink jet prints, video and animation, as well as unexpected materials such as Coca-Cola, tea and biro.
A touring exhibition organised by Canberra Museum and Gallery.
