Featuring 6 prominent international schools within the city of Shenzhen, the Kuku Chai International Youth Art Exhibition is a group show featuring foreign and international students of all ages 7-18. In collaboration with one of Southern China’s most infamous female visual artists, kuku Chai, students were asked to respond to her work focusing on Kuku Chai’s themes of traditional and contemporary Chinese landscapes, animals, birds, and buildings, while using any medium of their choice. Ten students from each school, of all ages, were selected by their respective art teachers to be represented in this show. It is through the call and response between Kuku Chai and the students, including the reinterpretation of KuKu Chai’s visual themes by the students that makes this exhibition unique and iconic; especially with this exhibition being held in the multi-national and dynamic city of Shenzhen. We invite you to view this amazing work and the poignant visual dialogue between the students and KuKu Chai.
