Harmonious Society

Asia Triennial Manchester 2014

The Harmonious Society exhibition (Asia Triennial Manchester 2014, 26 September – 23 November) featured over 30 major artists from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong across six key spaces in Manchester.

Responding to the Asia Triennial Manchester 2014 (ATM14) theme of  Conflict and Compassion, CFCCA’s curatorial team led by Jiang Jiehong, Professor of Chinese Art at Birmingham City University and a former curator of Guangzhou Triennial, focused on the current socio-economic vision presented by the government of mainland China, which seemingly presents ‘no conflict’ but rather, almost poetically, 天下無事, a ‘Harmonious Society’. Artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan also reflect their own socio-political situations that respond to the curatorial theme extensively.

This publication provides a comprehensive and critical guide to the largest exhibition of Chinese contemporary art in the UK to date and includes an introduction by Jiang Jiehong and keynote essays by Liu Xinghua and Wu Dar-kuen as well as a range of stunning photographs from all the artworks.
