CEAC Chinese European Art Center
We invite you to attend the opening of the The Young Dialogue, an international exhibition made by artists from the Multimedia Department / Art College of Xiamen University and the Sandberg Institute of Amsterdam..
The two postgraduate courses cooperate for nearly 10 years and are honored to present themselves at the 10 year anniversary of the CEAC.
The Young Dialogue is the title of our contribution to this anniversary. Young because all the participants of this exhibition are at the beginning of their art careers. The Dialogue points at the frankness of their minds to get to know each others frames of reference and approaches to the arts in spite off the different cultural backgrounds. We meet each other in a shared interest for art and its place in society.
