INK ASIA has proudly invited renowned curator, Dr Xia Kejun, to curate the China Pavilion: Contemporary Chinese Calligraphy. The exhibition will explore the transformation from traditional brush strokes to contemporary calligraphy, and from being a calligrapher to being an artist.
In the 1960s, ink art in Taiwan was modernised and abstract ink began to develop. The artist Liu Kuo-sung and his The Fifth Moon Group advocated a revolutionary idea: “Remove the paint brush”. At that time artists broke away from traditional materials and forms, combining Western Abstract Expressionism into their artworks.
To inspire innovation and broaden artistic vision in ink art, 18 artists from Hong Kong, China and overseas have been invited to exhibit their alternative ‘Ink’ works in the special programme ‘Ink+’ organised by INK ASIA 2016.
