The Confucius Institute is delighted to bring this fascinating exhibition to Manchester, telling the story of four generations of printmakers from Heilongjiang Province in the north-east of China. Prints from this region are widely known as the Great Northern Wildness School, which is one of the most influential and characteristic schools in the Chinese art arena. The exhibition tells the story of four generations of printmakers and, in doing so, provides a look back at 60 years of history that this area of China has experienced. Presented in collaboration with Dr Weimin He, Heilongjiang Museum of Art in Heilongjiang and Confucius Institute at Oxford Brookes.
On Wednesday 19th February at 4.30pm we will hold a public talk on Contemporary Chinese Printmaking prior to the exhibition launch at AMBS. Artist Dr Weimin He from Oxford, one of the artist printmakers featured in the exhibition will share exciting insights into the printmaking process, its history and developments over time.
