People who have saved this event:


Winds from Fusang: Cultural Dialogues between Mexican and Chinese Artists will be the first major exhibition to explore the influence of 20th-century Latin American art and artists on contemporary Chinese art.


While it is generally believed that only after the “opening” of China in the 1980s did the West begin to play a significant role in shaping contemporary Chinese art, there were, in fact, other Western influences prior to the Cultural Revolution, especially at mid- century, when China was supposedly closed to the outside world. Using works from public and private collections in the U.S., China, and Latin America, Crossing Pacific will demonstrate how themes, techniques, and specific artists from Mexico and other Latin American countries who visited China—including José Venturelli, Miguel Covarrubias, and David Alfaro Siqueiros--had an outsized influence on the burgeoning Chinese contemporary art community.
