10 Chancery Lane Gallery Art Projects presents ‘RED’
RED, China and Artistic Freedom, 17 perspectives 1979-2011
Hong Kong, May 2011—Since the Stars (“XING XING” in Chinese) Exhibition of 1979 there have been many moments of struggle for artists in China. A struggle to express themselves through art during times of open attitude and times of closing, traditional thinking and changing times. The push and pull between artists trying to make works within limits and outside them have led to more than 30 years of creativity that is unsurpassed the world over. The creative thinkers use as their tools social, political or perhaps just personal motifs. And sometimes the intention of the artist is misread completely by the reader. This exhibition brings together 17 artists’ works that contribute to the ongoing discussion on artistic freedom and expression in China and beyond its borders.
