Poetic Realism: A Rinterpretation of Jiangnan

Author/Editor: SUN Jianchun/ZUO Jing
Publisher: RCM Art Museum, Nanjing
Publish Date: 2006
Page Num: 0
Languages: Chinese English
"Jiangnan" always evokes not only an association with the areas lying south of the Yangtze River, but also a multitude of descriptions in ancient literary works, which gives the word a rich denotation beyond a mere geographic reality. It is the representation of the beautiful spiritual world of traditional Chinese literati, a Utopia bringing peace to the soul, with a tint of melancholy and sorrow. The present exhibition is an attempt to determine how the aesthetic nature of Jiangnan is developing in the visual arts, and where the poetic-cultural traditions intersect with the sociogeographic reality of Jiangnan. A brief history of RCM Art Museum is provided in the catalogue.
