Art Atrium is presenting China Translated in association with Chinese Contemporary Art Tasmania Inc. and China Cultural Centre.

Western artists encountering Chinese culture today do so under very different circumstances than their seventeenth and eighteenth century counterparts. Less a country shrouded in mystery, Westerners now have a greater understanding of China’s long and varied cultural traditions and systems of belief.

This exhibition focuses on the work of a number of Tasmanian artists who have engaged with aspects of Chinese culture and through such  encounters, have created works with new insights into their own culture as well as into broader contemporary issues.

Artists participating in this exhibition include Dr. Steve Carson, Karin Chan,  Chen Ping, Tracey Cockburn, Dr. Jan Hogan, Dr. Megan Keating and Dr. Matthew Boden, Gregory Leong & Dr. Xingming Wu.
