DEGENERATION is a contemporary Chinese art exhibition showcasing ten of China’s most highly acclaimed young ‘new media’ artists and curated by internationally renowned curator, Mariagrazia Costantino.
Originally shown at the OCT Contemporary Art Terminal Shanghai, DEGENERATION is the inaugural exhibition to open at the ACAF Art Terminal T1 in St Leonards.
The artists participating in DEGENERATION are perhaps the first, within the system of contemporary Chinese art, to be part of a genuinely transcultural circuit of art production and exhibition. DEGENERATION is about the inevitable change of standards, of whole societies and ideologies. It also reflects the contributing artists’ refusal to be part of a "generation" within the confines of the current Chinese art world but to see themselves as part of a wider commentary on the whole evolving critical assessment of the plight of humans on the planet.
These are truly stunning works by some of China's most famous contemporary artists and cinematographers. An experience that will stay in the mind and change the way many think of the Chinese perspective. A delight for the senses but a jolt for the mind. The exhibition is presented by the Australia China Art Foundation and The Bridging Hope Charity Foundation and sponsored by local property developer, Auswin TWT Developments.
