A painting by Xu Mangyao

Contemporary Chinese Realism at MEAM

The exhibition 'Beyond Language' features more than fifty works by thirty Chinese artists.

Given the scarcity of opportunities to see contemporary Chinese paintings in Barcelona, the exhibition Beyond Language - Contemporary Chinese Realism at the MEAM Museum of Modern Art, which is scheduled to open on 11 April, is a great chance to contemplate artworks by people like Xu Mangyao and Chen Danqing. The exhibition features 55 works by 30 Chinese artists working in oil. It is organized by the TIAC Academy of Fine Arts and curated by Ana Blanco and Scott Breton.

According to MEAM, oil painting was first introduced into China in the 17th century, but did not become popular in art circles until the late 19th century. The exhibition includes an exception: the work of the Spanish artist Golucho, a master of contemporary realism, who will give a workshop at MEAM coinciding with the exhibition. Artists from different parts of China, along with artists from Israel, the United Kingdom, Australia, Spain and Portugal, will participate in this artistic exchange.

The exhibition will be open to the public until 28 April. Additional information is available at the following link.
