Through the works of several Chinese artists, “Culture‧Mind‧Becoming” aims to reflect on the impact, appropriation, and reinvention of Chinese culture, through the lens of the globalization. The artists featured in the exhibition come from various backgrounds, influenced to varying degrees by the Western culture at different points in their lives. Furthermore, living in a complicated society has inspired the artists to redefine and reinvent the common component of their earlier years—the Eastern cultural experience, which manifests itself through multifaceted, rich artistic presentations.
Developing around the exhibition theme, the Global Art Center Foundation invites three renowned independent curators to organize three sections: “Re-discover” by independent curator Karlyn De Jongh from the Netherlands, “Ingrandimento” curated by Chinese independent curators Huang Du and Yang Shinyi, and “Fang Lijun: A Cautionary Vision” organized by Italian curator Danilo Eccher, director of Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (GAM) at Turin, Italy. “Re- discover” and “Ingrandimento” will take place at Palazzo Mora, while “Fang Lijun: A Cautionary Vision” will take place at Palazzo Marcello.
