The Weight of Lightness: Ink Art at M+
The museum’s first dedicated exhibition to the subject will present a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective on ink art from the 1960s to the present. ‘Ink art’ generally refers to artistic concepts and expressions in dialogue with the Asian tradition of ink painting and calligraphy, and the exhibition will reflect how ink art is not merely a medium, but an aesthetic integral to contemporary visual culture. Organised thematically, the exhibition features works taken from the M+ collection in various media such as painting, installation, photography, and moving image by artists across and beyond Asia.
Exhibition Date: 13 October 2017 to 14 January 2018 Opening Hours: 11am–6pm Wednesday to Sunday and public holidays* *The exhibition will be closed on 25 December, 2017 and 1 January, 2018 Venue: M+ Pavilion, West Kowloon Cultural District Free Admission
