This book is a collection of papers presented at an international academic conference held in conjunction with Liu Kuosong's solo exhibition at The Palace Museum, Beijing in 2007.

The exhibition 'Sixty Years a Painter: Retrospective Exhibition of Liu Guosong' at The Palace Musuem, signifies the acceptance of the innovative new ink painting movement into its cultural fold. The organisers therefore, take the opportunity of this exhibition to review the historical development of modern ink painting, so as to critically assess broader issues relating to calligraphy-painting and cultural modernisation. The conference aims to examine the theories and strategies that have arisen in the past half century out of response to the growing predominance of modern art.

Moderators of the conference include, Li Chutsing, Li Wenru, Xue Yongnian, Lang Shaojun, Li Chutsing and Chang Tsongzung.
