When an exhibition is called INK REMIX, you should expect plenty of the titular substance; however you expect a few unusual bits and pieces along with it. The former comes courtesy of the usual traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, as well as ink print jets, biros and more. The latter spans everything from painting, photography, video and animation to the likes of tea and Coca-Cola.
So, they're the substances and formats that you'll spy at the Museum of Brisbane's latest major exhibition — but there's more to the showcase subtitled 'Contemporary art from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong', of course. Through the work of 14 established and emerging artists, audiences can ponder just what ink means in today's society.
Plus, in addition to all things ink brightening up the gallery space until February 2017, INK REMIX also offers a heap of fun activities. Keen on an introductory lesson on fancy handwriting or a live calligraphy poetry demonstration? You'll find that at City Hall as well.
