The Yangjingbang Culture
Vernissage : 3rd December 18-21H
Address：Dumonteil Galerie (Room102,153,Jumen Rd, near Liyuan Rd.)
3rd December – 28th January
The "Yangjingbang" culture is born with the shanghainese melting pot. It is above all an attitude, the product of Shanghai's internationality and wide opening to the world, an ever exciting bridge thrown between the East and the West.
This movement emerged with the constant exchanges between the Chinese and foreign communities in Shanghai, each part building itself up out of each other's best, bringing out novelty and excitement in creation and art.
To be "Yangjingbang" is synonym with an open mind and the sharing resulting in cultural richness and diversity. We are the witnesses of an ever and fast changing world where travelling and enriching yourself with others cultures has become easier. In the meantime, that frenetic movement raises the question of our ability to adapt to the changes and protect our heritages.
All of our artists have taken their inspiration from the Chinese culture, in the streets or in its ancestral traditions. They have then pictured it through their own eyes European and Chinese or reflected on the place the human being can have in an urbanized multicultural world.
The artists presented in this exhibition are the results of an always inspired and more than ever inspiring China. They represent the "Yangjingbang" state of mind, Chinese and foreign, painters and sculptors alongside, sharing their own and unique artistic worlds with you.
The Gallery is proud to introduce you with the new inspired works of Duran, Wu Yongping, Jin Bo, Ma Sibo, Mauro Corda, Hsuan-Yin Cheng, Francesca Mitterand and Su Chenbo.
