Opening Reception – EMERGENCE – A Contemporary Chinese Art Exhibition

Emerging Young Artists and Beijing Hanwei International Art Centre are pleased to announce an exciting new exhibition of Chinese contemporary artists at the Toronto Center for the Arts titled Emergence, A Contemporary Chinese Art Exhibition. Curated by Emerging Young Artists and Zhang Siyong, the exhibition will run from the 11th to the 21st of August. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, August 11th, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The forum will be held at the Debate Room in the Hart House, University of Toronto.

The eight Chinese artists invited to participate in Emergence explore the relationships between the parts and the whole on several different levels: the human versus nature (Li Wang), personal memory and how it relates with collective memory (Li Hongbo and Zhang Chunhua), the relationship between the spirit and the body (Zhou Song), how the particular relates with the universal and vice-versa (Wang Fei and Jia Xinyu), the complex dialogue between visual form, perception, content, and interpretation (Yang Shuwen and Jia Shanguo).
