In association with Templar Contemporary Art Foundation, Mossgreen-Webb's is delighted to present Colours from China, an exhibition of contemporary Chinese art curated by well known Beijing curator and art critic Liao Wen. 

Colours from China brings the work of nine leading contemporary Chinese artists working in sculpture, painting, drawing and installation to New Zealand, many for the first time.

"China is currently like a sophisticated 'paradise' and my hope it that, through this exhibition, audiences can transcend the differences in language and cultural background, and feel the complexity in China's contemporary culture". - Liao Wen, Exhibition Curator

A public programme of curator and art specialist-led talks and tours will run throughout the duration of the exhibition.
