CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS

4 to 20 February
 

Northart will re-open after the summer break with an exciting programme of performances and music to launch two exhibitions celebrating Chinese New Year. ‘Accept Each Word Spoken with Love’ curated Miao Xu will showcase the work of twelve young Asian artists and ‘Hometown’ by members of the New Zealand Institute of Fine Arts will include work by well-known Chinese artists Bangzhen Deng and Lu Bo.
 
At first glance, the contrast between the two exhibitions seems striking, on reflection not so much so. Each highlights the multiplicity of the approaches to traditional Chinese art and Western art and fluidity of artists’ transition between them, as well as providing insights into the ways in which artists adapt their practice once exposed to new ideas and environments in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
