“HERE THERE” - 2019 NEW YEAR EXHIBITION AT WORLD TRADE CENTER, NEW YORK

At the time of the Lunar New Year 2019, “here” is the overseas artists, far from their hometowns; “there” is their roots deep down the soil in their hometowns. “Here” can also be the divergent thoughts of contemporary artists, while “there” can also be the time-honored and treasure-like tradition. “Here” represents an individual; “there” might be celestial.

On February 8th, our artists will get together in the atrium of the Oculus at the World Trade Center in New York City, showcasing their understanding and explorations of “here” and “there”
