Sinopticon: Contemporary Chinoiserie In Contemporary Art

An exhibition at multiple venues, this features the work of 13 international artists that investigates Chinese influence in contemporary art. It includes six new commissions from Erika Tan, Laura White, Gayle Chong Kwan, Tsang Kin-wah, Ed Pien and Stephanie Douet and new works by Meekyoung Shin and Karen Tam.

Sinopticon (from ‘sino’ meaning Chinese and ‘optic’ meaning ‘ways of seeing’) has been developed by London-based curator, Eliza Gluckman. Chinoiserie is a French term describing the Western commodification and impact of Chinese aesthetics on European decorative arts, architecture and garden design from the late seventeenth century onwards, an impact that is today undergoing a significant resurgence as China emerges as the most influential economy of the twenty-first century.

As a result, the exhibition will present the work of a variety of contemporary artists, all of whom draw inspiration from the wealth of chinoiserie in its many forms.
