Resonance featured the works of thirty Canadian printmaking artists at the Shengzhi Art Center in Beijing’s 798 Art District. The exhibit opened June 28 and ran through July 12, 2015.
Resonance celebrated the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and China. It was one of many cultural activities intended to underscore Canada’s commitment to the Canada–China year of people-to-people and cultural exchange.
The event was held in collaboration with the Embassy of Canada, Hunan Fine Arts Publishing House, and Shengzhi Art Center.
Curated by Wu Jiaqi of Canada, Resonance created a meaningful exchange between Canadian printmakers and the Chinese art communities.
Through the liaison of Mr. Guy Langevin, a Quebec printmaking artist and academic consultant for the exhibition, thirty contemporary printmakers’ works were shown from across Canada, including some of the most important artists working in this field.
In addition to Langevin, whose work is part of the exhibit, the opening ceremony Sunday was attended by Canadian ambassador to China Guy Saint-Jacques and Indiana University Head of Printmaking Tracy Templeton.
