The Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts is showcasing the creations of six Chinese artists at a contemporary art exhibition in England. These artists have reimagined traditional Chinese art materials, infusing them with fresh interpretations.

Titled Spirit Matters: Traditional Culture in Chinese Contemporary Art, the exhibition has transformed a gallery at the School of Art, Birmingham City University, into a space where the featured artists present their artistic explorations aimed at reshaping Eastern aesthetics.

Liu Jianhua is renowned for redefining conventional perceptions of ceramics, a long-standing material in Chinese craftsmanship. Displayed in his exhibition are stacks of “sands” that, upon closer inspection, reveal themselves to be crafted from porcelain.

Shortly after Rea McNamara became a mom, the curator was invited to create a digital exhibition for Regina’s MacKenzie Art Gallery. Like most new parents, McNamara often found herself awake in the middle of the night caring for her newborn while simultaneously scrolling on her phone, searching for answers and support.
