Literati vision and craftsman spirit infused at exhibition in classical garden

Share This Post

Classical Chinese gardens vividly demonstrate an architectural system designed by ancient intellectuals to realize their ideas of a spiritual haven with the aid of excellent handicraft. Now at the Nanchizi Museum, a garden and art space built in the classical style as an exhibition is being held to resonate with the long-standing philosophy of Chinese gardens, discussing the scholarly lifestyle in a modern context and the spirit of craftsmanship.

Curated by Cui Cancan, the exhibition, Literati and Artisan, brings together paintings, sculptures, installations and a film piece by three leading figures of Chinese contemporary art: Zhan Wang, Yang Fudong and Zhao Zhao. The works reflect on the relations between people and universal rules, and open up a dialogue on the interaction between modern people and new technologies. The exhibition runs until July 9.
