SHOW DAY THREE
3:00pm Tour of Japanese Galleries
5:00pm Chinese Contemporary Art Tour
Meet: Information Desk, LA Art Show

In recent years, Chinese Contemporary Art has been redefined by the influences from Western art and philosophy. This movement has spawned new innovative artists, pushing the boundaries of traditional mediums and experimentation. These new artist are taking on new forms, exploring the abstract, creating modern and even surreal work. Some artist seek a mutual respect with ancient Chinese traditions, while exploring a new aesthetic or philosophy . Some are even out to destroy those traditions. Each new artist is trying to discover their place on a now grand international stage.

The Chinese Contemporary Art tour will offer the visitors a greater understanding of these artist and ideas. More than just a isolated movement, Chinese Contemporary Art is also influencing Western art, slowly creating a full circle.
