Gizmo recently took on the challenge of building, and installing temporary walls in the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco CA to display the work of a handful of contemporary Chinese artists. the work deconstructs traditional Chinese art, pulling from modernist and postmodern concepts of the last 30 years to experiment with a new view of Chinese painting. a few notes from the curators Lui Pang and Bui Hau:
"Entering the new century, contemporary Chinese artists are now navigating more difficult terrain: they are seeking to win the right to both inherit and comment on traditional civilization. Earlier contemporary artists had neither the authority nor the interest for this...The works in this installation exemplify this turning point in contemporary Chinese art, one that not only expresses rediscovery of traditional artistic values but also signals an artistic renaissance in tandem with the rise of the nation."
