“Out of the Blue, A Calligraphic Journey through Alcantara” opens next week in the Apartment of the Princes at the Royal Palace of Milan as a special feature of Milan Art Week.
The exhibition showcases the work of six Chinese artists- Qin Feng, Qu Lei Lei, Sun Xun, Mao Lizi, Zhang Chun Hong and Wang Huangsheng – who have worked to combine the art of ancient calligraphy with avant-garde Alcantara material.
One of the highest forms of artistic expression in China, the ancient discipline of calligraphy in the digital age continues to provide a vehicle for addressing topical issues as it connects them with the ancient past.
Due to health concerns, the exhibition will be open to the public free of charge on a “by appointment” basis from Wednesday, September 9th through Sunday, October 11th. Milan Art Week takes place September 7-13.
The Alcantara calligraphy exhibit will be on display in The Apartment of the Princes which occupies 10 rooms in the southwest wing of the Royal Palace.
