Past and Present features a selection of traditional Chinese objects and painting in dialogue with works by a group of prominent contemporary artists active in China today. While the young artists do not consciously seek continuity with China’s rich cultural past, they each reveal surprising affinities with different aspects of it, resulting in surprising consonances as between the watercolor of Guo Hongwei and a Tang dynasty mirror or the mountains of Fu Xiaotong and the Qing dynasty painter Yu Chih-ting.
