In partnership with Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture at Western Sydney University, Willoughby City Council presents an exhibition to celebrate Lunar New Year 2021. Curated by Guan Wei, Precious Treasures is derived from the oldest Chinese dictionary, “Shuowen Jiezi”, in which treasure is defined as “precious”.
This exhibition features the work of six Chinese Australian artists who, in their search for self-identity, have learnt to embrace and incorporate their unique bicultural make-up into their artistic practice, including painting, installation and sculpture. Artists: Amy Fu, Jason D Phu, Justin Qian, Guan Wei, Yang Xifa and Louise Zhang.
Precious Treasures is part of Lunar North Confluence; exhibitions celebrating Lunar New Year on the North Shore.
