Excitement begins for A window into Chinese contemporary art

Written by Megan Tattersley

Some of the best Chinese artists work will be displayed at Liverpool’s St George’s Hall for the first time.

The display will feature work from 19 of the most exciting and established artists, such as Yan Zing, Cao Fei, Sun Xun and Luke Ching.

As this event is celebrating the Chinese artwork, the exhibition will be free and will include displays such as sculptures, paintings, videos and photographs.  The pieces shown will be covering the themes of  technology, connectivity and the individual’s place in the world today.

All of the artwork will be placed in the vaults of the Grade I listed Hall – which is often closed to the public.

MerseyDays spoke to people in Liverpool to get their view on the artwork coming to the city.

Mother of two Jane told us that it was a great opportunity to “further understanding of different cultures.” She plans to attend during Easter when her children are on a break from school. She added “I also this it is important to educate today’s children about different times and areas of the world.”

Local retail worker Paul said he was glad to see that something like this is in a Northern city appose to the “typical” London.

University Student, Emily says she plans to visit the artwork at some stage. She told MerseyDays, “While I am young and in a big city I want to experience everything I can while I can.”

The opening of the exhibition will take place from the 9th of February and will run until the 3rd June 2018. It will be open from 10am until 5pm, on Wednesdays through to Sundays.

As the exhibition is opening this month it corresponds with the World museums exhibition of China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors.
