This catalogue accompanies the group exhibition held at Today Art Museum, Beijing in March 2011. It gathers works by 24 Chinese artists, with the underlying notion that painting is a form of 'writing' and expression of the spirit. Curator Jiang Zaiming writes, 'The Chinese way of writing should not be restricted by the material, it embodies the present situation of art by revealing the nature of painting; The Chinese way of writing follows the consistent principles of Chinese painting: "Brush and ink evolves with the time"; The Chinese way of writing discards the perverted nationalism stand, in the ground of open modern Chinese society, searching for the royal road to the great beauty; The attitude of inheritance and innovation is the essence of Chinese way of writing, which also constitutes the basic idea of this exhibition.'
Artist pages are accompanied by short essays and other texts, some of which are available in Chinese only.
