Brush and Ink Reconsidered: Contemporary Chinese Landscapes
November 23, 2010 - May 14, 2011
This installation offers highlights from the Harvard Art Museums’ growing collection of recent Chinese ink paintings, which invite us to examine the meaning of “contemporary” in non-Western contexts. While using traditional materials, formats, and subjects, the 11 artists represented employ new techniques and work in styles that draw on both Western and Chinese sources. Artists include Li Huayi, Li Xubai, and Liu Dan, among others.
