Roberson Museum and Science Center is proudly hosting the exhibition Reshuffling the Past: 2015 Contemporary Chinese Ink Art in conjunction with the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera at Binghamton University.
Roberson is very excited to bring a traveling international exhibit to our region. We are a host site for “Reshuffling the Past: 2015 Contemporary Chinese Ink Art Exhibition.” The works of 8 Chinese ink artists were selected to be part of this exhibition which is on view at Roberson through April 30. This project, organized by the Confucius Institute Headquarters, promotes the development of Chinese contemporary culture and shows the world that, as China’s own traditional art form, ink continues to possess creative vitality today. The exhibition is made possible thanks to a partnership between Roberson and the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera at Binghamton University.
Chinese ink and wash painting is an elegant and expressive art form dating back more than a thousand years. While most collections of Chinese ink painting in major museums in Europe and the U.S. focus on its classic forms, this exhibition highlights modern and contemporary examples. The eight invited artists showcased in this exhibition are currently the leading explorers of ink painting.
