"Fresh Ink: Ten Takes on Chinese Tradition"
Innovation/Adaptation: 5,000 Years of Making Art in China
Fresh Ink: Ten Takes on Chinese Tradition (Nov. 2010-Feb. 2011) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, was a groundbreaking exhibition for which ten leading contemporary Chinese and Chinese-American artists created works in direct response to masterpieces in the Museum’s renowned collection. The exhibition juxtaposed these new works with the masterpieces that inspired them, creating a dynamic stage on which the classic historicizes the contemporary as the new reinterprets the old. Curator Hao Sheng discussed the art works and related personal stories on the making of the show.
