VIDEO: Reshuffling the Past: Contemporary Chinese Ink Art Opening

President Loh, The Art Gallery and the Confucius Institute at Maryland welcomed the larger University of Maryland community to campus for the opening of the gallery's current exhibition "Reshuffling the Past: Contemporary Chinese Ink Art" on Tuesday, February 10, 2015. 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.

Established with support from Hanban, also known as the Office of Chinese Language Council International, the Confucius Institute at Maryland promotes the understanding of China today through the study of Chinese language, culture, ethics and philosophy.
