Organised by M+, the public symposium explores the discourse of ink art in artistic experimentation from the 1985 Art New Wave period to the present. Featuring presentations by leading scholar and curator, Martina Kӧppel-Yang; artists Yang Jiechang and Qiu Zhijie; and moderated by Pi Li, Sigg Senior Curator at M+, this forum focuses on how ink art has freed itself from the narrow confines of tradition and has transformed into a contemporary artistic language that engages with wider developments in the 20th and 21st century.
