The aim of the exhibition is to bring to the Milwaukee Community the work of this important Chinese artist whose work incorporates traditional Chinese ink techniques with modern Western ideas concerning pictorial space. This is one in a series of Haggerty Museum of Art exhibitions featuring culturally diverse approaches to current developments in art. Previous exhibitions of Chinese art at the Haggerty include Half a Century of Chinese Woodblock Prints: 1945-1998 (June 4-August 29, 1999) and Feng Mengbo: Video Games (November 20, 1998 - January 31, 1999).
