Chinese Now: Contemporary Portraits

The people of China are brought to life in the vision of the 31 artists from the Renmin University School of Fine Arts, China presented by the Confucius Institute and Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan.

“The concern of this exhibition is in establishing the cultural sensibilities of contemporary China, just as different peoples, at different times, have engaged art as a vital social response to the movement of history. As Professor Leo Ou-fan Lee has noted, engagement with these cultural sensibilities allows an audience to grasp “certain core feelings, the stuff which moves us” so inherent in the drama of life. In presenting this exhibition, the hope is that an understanding of these core feelings will form the basis for meaningful intercultural dialogue.”
