Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China @ The met
This may be the best exhibition of contemporary chinese art I have ever seen, I really liked the curatorial premise , …... China’s ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path. The exhibition includes work in many different mediums, I really liked Ai Wei Wei's small scale ceramic pieces so much more than the big overproduced pieces that dominated the hirschorn last winter. there were some pieces of a massive scale but they felt very personal and addressed the reconciliation of the past with the present in very personal ways. Highly recommended.
