Looking Backward: Chinese Art in 2014

Shuxia Chen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Exhibition 'Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China,' which opened in December 2013 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) in New York, reflected a basic theme of the contemporary Chinese art scene in 2014: nostalgia and continuity with the past. By juxtaposing contemporary ink works in various media (including painting, photography, sculpture, installation and video) with fifth-century Buddhist sculptures from its permanent collection as well as Han-dynasty ceramics and Ming furniture, The Met attempted to place Chinese art today within its historical context.
