China Techne – A Taste of colours of China
August 30 - November 24
CINA TECHNE – A taste of colours from China is an exhibition that, conceiving alternative points of view by de-naturalizing the usual established productive and effective concepts, works on the dynamics of historical and talented manual processes used over the centuries to constitute some specific works of art.
Chinese Art is based on Techne, a term used as the equivalent of “art” in the critical language, and art criticism. “Art” in the sense of “expertise“, “knowing how to do”, “knowing how to operate”, is the set of rules applied and followed in an activity, whether it be exclusively intellectual or even manual. Such norms can be acquired empirically as they are formulated and transmitted by tradition, for example in artisan work, or by applying specialized and innovative scientific knowledge when the transition from manufacturing to industrial production occurs.
