In actual fact, “Male- Female” exhibition’s subject is the possibilities of contemporary ink art. What makes it “contemporary”? What are its means of expression? What are its subject matters? Where is its rightful place in the vast array of today’s Chinese and world art? The exhibition is conceived as a meeting of two important contemporary ink artists. It intends neither to confront nor provoke a dialogue. It is sounding out the possibilities of contemporary ink painting from a female and male perspective.
