Episode number 11 of Series “Heart of the Dragon”.
This program looks at the world of contemporary Chinese art, exploring the philosophic and historic influences that shape it. The way that Chinese artists pursue the essence of “reality” is examined as are the techniques which combine traditional values with unconventional materials to produce works that are resplendently Chinese.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
