Australia China Art Foundation fosters contemporary art from Australia, China and the Asia Pacific by way of its exhibitions, including collaborative projects with commercial and public galleries and exchange programs. We support artists and help build networks among arts professionals, cultural institutions and individuals.
ACAF presents a selection of works created by students and artists participating in our ARTS CAN DO program based at the Shanghai Jiu Qian Volunteer Centre Song Jiang District Supplementary School, a special educational school dedicated to working with children with special needs and disability. The exhibition will give visitors an insight into the ARTS CAN DO program and explore the current work of recent ACAF resident artists, Brenton Mark Rossow, Kriss Wong, Mónica Ferreras, Sophie Cape, Zhang Liangxi and Zhang Yi.
The new Australia China Art Foundation exhibition Gestalt & Function will be open on 21 May 2016 in Shanghai. The show is curated by the ACAF curator Jeremy Gales(Australia) and features two artists Li Wenguang (China) and Yang Inhee (Korea).
Gestalt, used liberally within Germanic languages and across disciplines, from architecture to literature, as a way of defining form. When coupled with function, in an artistic context, one is unable to assume what product, work or matter will come to fruition, it is an uneasy yet complementary relationship. One reliable factor when the two are practically combined, during a conceptual process, is there will be a concise and clear understanding of perception.
This exhibitionby New Zealand/Australian artist Craig Easton takes its cues from western languages of constructivist, minimalist and conceptual art while drawing on thetraditions of the literati gardens of Southern China. In particular heconsiders here the devices of mirrors, screens, frames and pathways as a method for both generating the works and framing a more immersive viewer experience.The resulting exhibition combining abstract painting, video, photography andobject will be presented in the exhibition space of ACAF Art Centre, Shanghaifrom May 21.
