“Crossing Pacific: talk to maters in person” was a special program planned during the opening ceremony. The dialogue was hosted by prof. Zhiyuan Cong, he invited President of China National Academy of Painting Mr. Xiaoyang Yang, vice president of China National Academy of Painting and chief editor of Art News of China Dr. Xiaoling Zhang, and Robert C. Morgan, American Art Critic for a talk on Chinese contemporary ink art. Despite the apparent differences between American culture and Chinese culture, it has never stopped artists connecting with each other. 12 years ago, Robert C. Morgan met with Mr. Xiaoyang Yang over disagreement of art expression, now they have found consensus on tolerance and communication in today’s two giant cultures, and became art confidant. These two dialogues will become tales in the American and Chinese contemporary art exchange history. Mr. Ip-Wing Kong, Director of New York Gallery of Chinese Art opened the exhibition and cut the ribbon for the gallery’s grand opening.


As the chief program organizer of this project in America, Prof. Zhiyuan Cong told reporter, that the Center for Chinese Art has great appreciation for China National Academy of Painting, their president Mr. Xiaoyang Yang and vice president Mr. Xiaoling Zhang, for the honor and opportunity to co-organize and co-host this international project. The Center for Chinese Art will continuously organize high level exhibitions and academic programs like this, and will keep up with the Chinese American culture and art exchange and development.
