Two rising stars of the new Chinese contemporary art scene - Zhang Kai and He Jie - will be discussing their work to tie in with their first European exhibition

About

Two of China’s most exciting young contemporary artists are coming to London this summer in a joint exhibition at the Royal College of Art’s Gulbenkian Gallery, offering British audiences an enlightening overview of the new generation of Chinese artists.

Zhang Kai and He Jie’s works strongly reference Western and Eastern art history, finding inspiration from European historical events and the paintings of the old masters, while still keeping a recognisable Chinese identity and subject matter, expressing their own feelings about modern life from a young Chinese person’s point of view.
