As one of the oldest art forms in the world, what place does ink art have in today’s context, and what do contemporary applications tell us about its future as a medium?
This lecture explores the development of ink practice in an international context, drawing on examples by artists who push the boundaries of ink practice and subvert its traditional forms. Yin Shuangxi will also share his views on the place and significance of ink art today, and his thoughts on its future developments.
The lecture is conducted in Mandarin and will be translated simultaneously into English.
