Partnerships | MoCA Beijing 10th Anniversary Exhibition (2)

“Partnerships” is a theme to commemorate the10th Anniversary of the Museum of Contemporary Art Beijing. This exhibition showcases the works of artists from different disciplines and forms a part of a whole and represents an interactive relationship among cultures. The artworks provide an insight into contemporary and current art. Paintings, drawings, graphics, calligraphies, collages, photographs, sculptures all reflect differences or even cultural similarities.

Partnerships is a synonym for tolerance and cohesion. The selected artworks testify to the sensibility, subtlety and leniency of the artists who show their own perception of the world in this exhibition and leave a lasting impression. Their works of art have their claims expressed to the world and compete with other strong perspectives of reality. Some conquer the space, and some withdraw elegantly. Some want to be placed on a pedestal while others require a dark environment to protect their surface from the light. Some prefer to perform in groups and others as soloists. Some exhibits communicate with the viewers when piano notes accompany them. No matter how but all the selected works are interrelated and form a (new) whole.

A partnership is, after all, a pendulum between reason and passion, emancipation and headwind. It is also a chance to make visible lines of international art development across the borders.
