Transcultural Painting

By Various Contributors

Asialink ; in Conjunction with the University of Melbourne, 1994. CURATOR: Merryn Gates, Frances Lindsay. ARTISTS: Tony Clark, Lindy Lee, Linda Marrinon, John Young. As curator Frances Lindsay explains ‘Transcultural Painting consciously conveys the interactive process by which artists absorb and transmute influences from a range of sources, including cultures other than their own…’, with an special focus on the relationships with China, through Lee’s and Young’s cultural backgrounds in China and Hong Kong respectively, and Clark’s interest in the European style which paid homage to Chinese art, chinoiserie. Reflecting the renewed interest in the Asia Pacific region in the early 1990s, artist John Young in his opening speech at Tamsui Arts Centre said: ‘The days when Australia only looked towards Europe and North America in terms of contemporary art is a thing of the past. I hope this exhibition will be the beginnings of many future cultural exchanges between artists, critics and art institutions between this part of the world and Australia.’ This exhibition toured to Taichung, Taipei, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing, Melbourne (1994-1995). Just with light corner bumps. p.48, illustrated. [ Location: Box 4 ]. First Edition. Soft Cover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
