DESCRIPTION

Artists living and working in China illustrate their views on the past embodied by tradition, the future embodied by progress, and the present. Utopia Nowhere aims to show how such concepts relate to one another in the context of culture and society at both global and local levels. Through a variety of visual art mediums, the exhibition is presented in three approaches; attitudes towards social and environmental progress in China, reflections on Chinese culture and tradition, and ‘contemporary nostalgia.’
