Curious about new Chinese art but can’t afford a ticket to Beijing? Try Florida
Florida might sound like an unlikely place to look for Chinese art, but with a new exhibition at the Tampa Museum of Art dedicated to young Chinese artists, that connection couldn’t make more sense.
The exhibition is called, “My Generation: Young Chinese Artists” and was organized by Barbara Pollack, author of The Wild, Wild East: An American Art Critic’s Adventures in China (2010). The exhibition will be at the Tampa Museum of Art until September 28 at which point it will relocate to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art from Oct. 25, 2014-Jan. 18, 2015. If you get the chance you’ll notice that young Chinese artists are embracing traditional Chinese art by mixing a sense of cultural identity and globalism in their art works.
