International Exhibition at the Manet Art Museum in Beijing, China
Raw Umber and Silk. Jo Darvall New paintings. A recent successful collaborative exhibition shown in Singapore and a full-page review in Asian Art News, has sparked a unique opportunity for Jo Darvall, an artist from Fremantle, Western Australia. The exhibition was titled All that is Changing and focused on a tribute to two artists, Chinese born Singaporean Georgette Chen and Australian, Kathleen O’Connor.
In a world moving so frenetically, and in which much of our culture is considered to be disposable, it behoves us to revisit and honour the artists and their bodies of work that have come before - and to not forget. This concept is not surprisingly universal - and has captured the attention of key cultural icons in Beijing namely the Manet Art Museum and Zhong Guan Cun Magazine.
This exhibition is proudly supported by Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries Western Australia and Zhong Guan Cun Magazine China.
