Ink and Wood: Modern Chinese Paintings in the Scholar’s Studio
Liang Yi Museum
181-199 Hollywood Road,
Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Sep 04, 2018 To Feb 26, 2019
Detail: The exhibition Ink and Wood presents a stunning collection of modern Chinese paintings alongside scholarly objects from Liang Yi Museum's permanent collection of classical Chinese furniture. Exhibitions previously organised at Liang Yi Museum had focussed on the decorative arts-classical Chinese furniture, European vanity cases and silverware of important historical significance, to name a few. However, for this exhibition, the Museum has decided to bring together the two disciplines, by exhibiting 24 paintings by renowned modern Chinese painters (generously on loan from a local private collector) in recreated classic Chinese scholar's studios. The exhibition fuses together the best of not only fine art and decorative art; but also juxtaposes traditional and classic craftsmanship versus the more contemporary medium of modern Chinese painting.
