Floating Time: Chinese Prints, 1954?2002 brings together, for the first time, the University of Sydney Art Collection's ninty-three modern and contemporary Chinese prints. This substantial collection includes national prize-winning prints and works by internationally acclaimed artists, including Zhao Zongzao and Su Xinping. The half-century represented here reveals not only the development of the powerful woodcut tradition under Mao, but also the rapid expansion of printmaking as artists embraced a broader set of themes and more experimental techniques. Such developments reflect the tumultuous periods in which these works were produced and offer a unique and intimate glimpse into the lives of these fifty artists ? a vastly different perspective from the familiar forms of contemporary Chinese art seen in better known international art circuits.
