Conceptual Art – Exhibition of Contemporary Paintings from China
21/1/2005 - 20/3/2005

The Cultural Institute of the Macao S.A.R. Government and the Cultural Department in Shenzhen have co-organized the “Conceptual Art – Exhibit of Contemporary Paintings from China”, which opened at the Tap Seac Gallery on January 21 (Friday) at 6:30pm. The exhibition displays selected contemporary paintings collected by the Shenzhen Art Museum in recent years, revealing the uniqueness portrayed by Chinese contemporary conceptual art.

Most of the works displayed in the “Conceptual Art – Exhibit of Contemporary Paintings from China” are created between 2000 and 2004 with a few exceptional ones dating back to the late 80s and early 90s. These works fully reflect the Chinese art circle’s hard work in breaking through traditional restraints posted by realism in the 80s and the exploration of the different media used in modernism and postmodernism. The Shenzhen Art Museum has organized three successive thematic exhibitions as a means to encourage in-depth research on this contemporary cultural phenomenon. Some of these exhibits have been collected in archives and many art critics have been invited to host lectures on contemporary paintings and to publish collections of academic dissertations, making a great impact on China’s art circle.

Contemporary Chinese paintings, with conceptualization as their central element, are a complete deviation from traditional paintings, giving their viewers not only visual but also intense mental impacts that arouse their interest in the painters’ mental worlds. The exhibition also displays works of a new generation of Chinese artists, who came up with works full of distinctive Chinese elements through their exploration in the art of painting.

The organizers will host discussion sessions to allow local artists and those interested to exchange ideas with art critics. All are welcome to join the discussions. For reservations, interested parties could contact Ms. Lam or Mr. Ao at 335140, fax to 335143 or email to av@icm.gov.mo.

The Tap Seac Gallery will organize workshops for secondary school students and guided tours for different sectors of the community during the exhibition period. All are welcome to join.
