Entitled “Inheritance and Transformation,” Panel One focuses on artists who are deeply rooted in their cultural and artistic inheritance, while revitalizing and enlarging their tradition with a distinctly contemporary sensibility.Devoted to examining artists giving voice to the varied and changing cultural landscape of identities, values, and beliefs, Panel Two, “The Changing Boundaries,” invites artist, curators, and art critic to examine and discuss how Asian artists seek to reposition themselves in a global context.

A reception with hors d’oeuvre and wine will follow the Symposium. NanHai Art will open four exhibitions concurrently at its newly-renovated spaces, featuring works by five artists -Hou Beiren, Arnold Chang and Michael Cherney, Shen Chen, and Stella Zhang.
