Beyond the Mountain: Contemporary Chinese Artists on the Classical Forms

Jul 22 2022 – Ongoing

Seattle Asian Art Museum

South Gallery

In Chinese art, the past is often a source of inspiration and sometimes also a means for expressing resistance to status quos. Works by the contemporary artists in this exhibition reanimate China’s material, visual, and linguistic legacies with contemplations on the social costs of modernity and globalization, of migrating from one place and culture to another, and the challenge that humans represent to the natural world. This exhibition was developed in collaboration with University of Washington students.
