The focal position of images in contemporary art has experienced several deconstruction and shock from the social value. As a result, a number of new artist begin to show some practical exploring spirit. It seems that the flow of visional thinking foretells a powerful memory of the era. Trying to explain the standing question of WHAT IS IMAGE ART, this exhibition will make an attempt to analyze and frame the system of contemporary image art. Western and oriental context, implanted, will mix up and re-build a derivation of cultural system for every single natural person.
The five sections of this exhibition: the Field, the Domain, the Emotion, Natural – Unnatural, and Gathering – Recalling, although presented in various forms including experimental film, conception recording, abstract images, body recording of dancing and conception photography, they share a consideration based on humanity ecology. They are intended to reveal more intersections and resonances in between the respective creating directions of different generations of artists.
The forum of the opening ceremony is also based on this consideration. In the process of cooperation with various art organizations, the forum will offer a good many topics from culture rather than artists themselves. A series of exploring academic exchange will focus on the interact from authoring, criticism, research and tutoring, and try to offer more experimental social values in the publication of this event.
