36 days in ChinaTuesday 4 December, 2018 – Friday 14 December, 2018
9:00 AM – 7:30 PM
The Corridor Gallery, Sion Hill Campus, Bath, BA1 5SF
Second year Fine Artist Martin Ortiz de Taranco invites visitors to be immersed in the rituals and routines of the people he encountered during a summer school in China, seen through the lens of their everyday exchanges.
Martin spent July 2018 at The International Academy for Chinese Thought and Culture, a collaboration between Beijing Foreign Studies University, Peking University and Bath Spa University through the Global Academy of Liberal Arts network (GALA).
Through this photographic exhibition he looks at some of the ideas he was introduced to there, the importance of the community as a vehicle to build a prosperous and stable society, the role that individuals play within that community, and the relentless and constant change that drives history.
The exhibition will open with a preview evening on Monday 3 December, 5.30pm - 7.30pm.
