Contemporary Art at the Chinese Museum
Zhou Xiaoping, Chinese Australian Artist, Winter 2017
Xiaoping: “I’m a citizen of the world; I don’t see barriers between people”
Zhou Xiaoping is a Chinese Australian who has does something that very few Australians have done. Xiaoping has spent several years living in remote Aboriginal communities in Arnhem land and the Kimberley. During this time he learned firsthand the ancient traditions of an art form that is steeped in symbology and meaning.
Xiaoping then went one step further and set about integrating this first hand knowledge with his classically learned techniques in Chinese and European art. The result is a truly unique form of expression that combines elements of all these traditions, embedded within is deep symbology and meaning, in a form that is at once vibrant and hinting of deep connection with earth and people.
Xiaoping makes clear that different cultural backgrounds can be brought together in a respectful way, one that enables us to see commonalities, and not differences.
The Chinese Museum has a unique opportunity to show Xiaoping’s most recent work from late May to the end of the year in our largest gallery space on the first floor. Putting together such a show involves cost around display, marketing, labelling, travel, curating, translation and installation.
