Despite the boom of Chinese contemporary Art, new media art from China is
still little known. «New Directions from China» is the first group show of
its kind in Europe. It was curated by Zhang Ga, the artistic director of the
China International New Media Arts Exhibition 2008 at the National Art
Museum of China in Beijing.

"New Direction from China is the first attempt to bring an exhibition of
Chinese artists working exclusively in the area of new media to the European
audience. The exhibition is comprised of works from both established as well
as emerging artists from Mainland China. By presenting a body of
exemplifying works, it is my hope to introduce to the West a glimpse of the
new direction of artistic endeavor from China, though nascent, yet already
manifesting great potential and refreshing vitality. The exhibition is
conceived to inspire active dialogues among media art communities and to
embark on a discourse of the open art work seen from culturally and
historically disparate contexts and traditions."
Zhang Ga

The Exchange between Artists from China and Switzerland was made possible by
the generous support by Pro Helvetia.
