This event has ended.
Taking a hint from the concurrent show at the Kankai Pavilion, “Line and Space: Cy Twombly and East Asia”, this exhibition showcases works by contemporary art masters who, like Twombly, have left a solid mark in the history of art. Juxtaposed with these works, however, are works by artists of later generations. The intent of this comparison is to highlight the process of “appropriation” or “metamorphoses” by which new art borrows from the “classics,” an act of homage that has played a constant role through the ages.
