“New Account of the Tales of the World”, published in the Southern Song Dynasty, is a book that contains 36 chapters and more than 1100 historical anecdotes and character sketches of literati, musicians, and painters who lived from the Second through Fourth Centuries. This famous volume constitutes an important source for that historical period.

“New Expression of Beijing”, used as an excuse to organize an exhibition, is inspired by the “tales of the world”, attempts to record and present feedbacks from the most recent and vivid expressions of the artists who live and work here, by means of their everyday notes and sketches.This kind of record is certainly incomplete, but rather similar to a collection of samples and pieces in all shapes, forms and fragments that dazzle and radiate with their aura.
Beijing, the source center for Chinese contemporary art over the last four decades, has always had the largest number of artists, the most vibrant creativity, where the most cutting-edge exploration and experimentation took place. Of course, it is also where new ideas clashed with the old ones, the new integrated, assimilated, or even replaced the old, or where the new transformed the old, or at times, the old is reborn into the new.

“New Expression”, presents the notes and sketches of here and now, the works on view embody the subjective, limited, yet detailed practices of these artists, at the same time, they are momentary, ephemeral, yet leaving their marks behind.
