In a comprehensive and faithful manner, the exhibition will review the exploration and insistence of the two artists during their long painting practice that dates back to the 1950s. Meanwhile, the exhibition looks back at the complex interaction of their painting practice within the authoritative framework from a contemporary perspective, trying to depict the metaphorical relationship between art practice and the changes of aesthetic and political discourses.
