My friend Kate is currently curating an exhibition of Australian-Chinese art, Coming Home which opens this weekend in Beijing.
According to the Media Release associated with the exhibition…
The Sydney Olympic Park Authority is proud to present ‘Coming Home’ the largest exhibition of Chinese Australian contemporary art ever to be held in the People’s Republic of China.
Following on from 2008’s successful ‘From Mao to Now’ exhibition, this project is part of a broader program of cultural exchange between host cities of the Olympic Games initiated by Sydney Olympic Park. Managed and curated by Catherine Croll, Coming Home opens at the new Linda Gallery, 798 Beijing from 9-24 May.
Coming Home will feature the work of 35 Chinese Australians
