Group Exhibition of Chinese Ink Painting Masters
《水墨中國》中國名畫家精品英國展


On October 30th 2013, Ink China: Group Exhibition of Chinese Ink Painting Masters will open at Henry Moore Gallery, Royal College of Art. This exhibition is hosted by the Painting and Calligraphy Institute, China Central Research Institute of Culture and History, organized by Beijing Jade Olive Culture and Arts Co., LTD and co-organized by Meridian Culture and Arts Organization.

In this exhibition, 45 Chinese ink painting masters have been invited and 105 pieces of ink art in various subjects and styles selected by the Painting and Calligraphy Institute, China Central Research Institute of Culture and History and China National Painting Academy. The current development of Chinese ink art is presented comprehensively, and this exhibition showcase is concentrated on contemporary Chinese ink art, which is rare in recent years in the UK.

Ink China has received the public’s attention widely in both China and the UK. On the opening day, Mr. Liu Xiaoming, Ambassador of Embassy of People’s Republic of China, UK and Mr. Xiang Xiaowei, Minister and Cultural Counselor will be present. Also the artists and people from cultural and academic fields will gather together, discussing and sharing their points of views in the development of art and cultural contributions and responsibilities.

With the process of globalization, China has played an increasingly important role in international affairs. While the development in China’s economy has achieved worldwide attention, the development of Chinese culture and art has equally attracted attention around the world. Chinese ink art, as a master of Chinese culture and art will be obliged to assume a role as a ‘cultural ambassador’. By centralized, large-scale displays of excellent Chinese ink art works, more international friends can understand Chinese culture and art, and more westerners could understand the logic of thinking and oriental cultural artistic taste, which could enhance mutual understanding and friendly exchanges between the people in the two countries. Ink art, as a bridge between China and the UK, will build a platform for dialogue and promote the exchange and cooperation between these two countries.

 

2013年10月30日,在英國皇家藝術學院亨利摩爾展廳舉辦的《水墨中國》中國畫名家精品英國展正式開幕,此次展覽是由中國中央文史研究館書畫院主辦,中國北京玉橄欖文化藝術有限公司承辦,英國子午線藝術學會協辦的大型中國水墨作品精品群展。

此次畫展策展人楊潤東先生介紹,展覽由中國中央文史研究館書畫院及中國國家畫院共同邀請了共45位中國水墨藝術大家,精選了105件題材多樣、風格各異的水墨藝術精品。全面立體的展現了中國水墨藝術發展的現狀,是英國近年來少有的對中國當代水墨藝術進行的集中展示。

《水墨中國》展覽的舉辦受到了中英兩國各界人士的廣泛關注,開幕當天,中華人民共和國駐英國大使館大使劉曉明先生親切會見了國內來英參展藝術家,公使銜文化參贊項曉偉先生蒞臨指導致辭,同時來自英國文化界、學術界的各位朋友也將與參展藝術家們歡聚一堂,共同探討和分享中國水墨藝術為世界藝術發展和文化潮流做出的貢獻和肩負的責任。

隨著全球化進程的不斷推進,中國在國際事務上扮演的角色越來越重要,在中國經濟發展取得全世界注目的同時,中國文化和藝術的發展也受到全世界的關注,中國水墨藝術作為中國文化藝術的集大成者便責無旁貸的承擔起“文化大使”的角色,通過將中國優秀的水墨藝術作品進行集中的、大規模的展示,一方面可以讓更多的國際友人了解中國的文化藝術,另一方面也可以讓更多的西方人了解東方文化的思維邏輯和藝術情趣,增進兩國人民的相互了解和友好往來,以水墨藝術為橋樑,搭建一個東西方交流和對話的平臺,促進中英兩國的交流和合作。
