More About the Exhibition:

Imprinting In Time surveys printmaking by Chinese artists from the 1980s to the present, examining the unique narrative of the medium within the contexts of cultural, academic, sociopolitical, and economic changes in recent Chinese history. From the inception, the woodblock has been given singular priority for articulating social commentary and nationalistic sentiments since the 1930s. The emergence of etching, lithograph, silkscreen, and digital devices in the 1980s added new energy to the medium. In response to the current decline of printmaking in the art market, a handful of artists are searching for ways to advance the medium and participate in global conversations.
