The Prospective Development of Chinese Ink Painting
25 Aug 2012
2 to 3.30pm |
@ Ngee Ann Auditorium, ACM Empress Place (Basement)
Tradition entails life. It comes into being when people weave their common experiences together; it grows when more and more people join in, expanding it, deepening it, identifying and solving new problems along the way, and moving it in new directions. In short, the significance of tradition lies in its continuous development. Through an open dialogue, Ho Chee Lick will explore the development of the tradition of Chinese ink painting, and share his own ink-painting experiments.
