A Canadian con­tem­po­rary art ex­hi­bi­tion, The Trans­for­ma­tion of Canadian Land­scape Art: In­side & Out­side of Be­ing, will be on dis­play through March 8 at To­day Art Mu­seum in Bei­jing.

The open­ing cer­e­mony of the ex­hibit, the sec­ond stop of the show that de­buted last Au­gust in Xi’an, north­west China’s Shaanxi prov­ince, was held on Jan 31.

The Canadian Am­bas­sador Guy Saint-Jac­ques, Yang Chao, direc­tor of Xi’an Art Mu­seum and Gao Peng, direc­tor of To­day Art Mu­seum, and the ex­hi­bi­tion’s Canadian cu­ra­tor Zhou Yan at­tended.

Fif­teen top Canadian artists in­clud­ing Re­becca Bel­more, a renowned First Na­tion artist, have on dis­play di­verse and cut­ting-edge art­works that in­clude in­stal­la­tion, paint­ing and vis­ual arts.

On Jan 29 at the Canadian Em­bassy in Bei­jing, the event Canada in Con­ver­sa­tion brought to­gether Canadian and Chi­nese coun­ter­parts.

Gao Peng had a face-to-face con­ver­sa­tion on con­tem­po­rary arts with Re­becca Bel­more, who was on her first visit to China.

Just like (paint­ings of moun­tains and wa­ters), land­scape art has played a ma­jor role in early Canadian art his­tory, which still thrives in the popular cul­ture to­day.
