> DESCRIPTION

From calligraphy evolved laws and rules for formative arts or visual arts, and it went hand in hand with Chinese characters that are considered a time-honored and vigorous fruit of the Chinese civilization. What is amazing and thought-provoking is that a number of contemporary artists who are engaged in painting, photography, installation, or video are practicing calligraphy as amateurs, in which calligraphy becomes a medium for self-adjustment and self-discipline. This exhibition includes calligraphic works by nineteen contemporary artists. It aims to focus on the free state of calligraphy not as art products, so that the audience can share the artist’s pure and individual mind. There must be significant relationship between these calligraphic works and the quality and import these artists show in the context of contemporary art. Several contemporary artworks with calligraphy as medium are also on display, serving as a clue to the background of contemporary art.
