Event Name
Photography Exhibition “Meticulous Detail, Gongbi 工笔"
28 August 2017
Parramatta Campus

Address (Room): Building EA.G.03, Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture Gallery

This photographic exhibition is an international exchange between the Shenzen Large Format Photography Association and PhD candidates from the School of Humanities and Communications Arts, Western Sydney University. Gongbi 工笔 meaning 'meticulous detail', is a term borrowed from traditional Chinese painterly depiction and refers to a careful realist technique, unlike the style of interpretive and free expression xieyi 写意 'sketching thoughts'. This exhibition examines, what is it that modernism and post-modernism bring to a westernised aesthetic and how much, in turn, has that already been influenced by traditional Chinese aesthetic?
