Contemporary China Exhibitions
Cork Institute of Technology celebrates its engagement with contemporary Chinese Art this month when two exhibitions open at the CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design’s new exhibition space, and CIT Cork School of Music. Both exhibitions open to the public on January 19th and run until Chinese New Year on February 6th.
The Wandesford Quay exhibition is a collaboration with the Don Gallery in Shanghai, and curated by its Director, Xixing Cheng. This exhibition will feature the work of a number of Shanghai-based Chinese artists, including Yunyao Zheng, Han Feng, Huang Ling, Liu Ren, Lu Tianyang, Ni Youyu, Xiao Jiang, Zhang Xiangxi, as well as Beijing-based artist Xuewu Zheng. This exhibition is facilitated by Ciaran Walsh and Fion Gunn.
The CIT Cork School of Music Exhibition, titled “From Here to There”, is curated by Fion Gunn, and features Irish artists who have already exhibited in China, including Harry Moore, Mary Mackey, Audrey Mullins, Dara McGrath, Fion Gunn and Chinese artist Maleonn Ma, who exhibited recently at the Sirius in Cobh.
Both exhibitions run from January 19th until February 6th and have received support from Cork City Council and University College Cork.
