Jointly hosted by National Taiwan Normal University and Nanjing University of the Arts (AMNUA), “Ink Painting – Academic Exchange Exhibition” is about to be presented at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (Taipei) and the Nanjing University of the Arts (AMNUA). It will really improve the academic exchange between the cross-strait and the two schools. The artists from Nanjing are the doctors and masters of the school, and are the backbone of the “freehand group”. With a solid professional foundation and strong comprehensive creating ability, while advocating a freehand expression, they have their own artistic pursuits. The works showcase our individual artistic pursuits from different angles, meanwhile showcasing the concept and value of “having a wide range of knowledge and firmly pursuing art” from the perspective of art.
