Week 49 The Patron.SC

The Patron .SC : acrylic on canvas 50x50cm 倪芙瑞莲, Niamh Cunningham 2019

A portrait will be posted every week (usually Sunday afternoon) on this website home page throughout the year of 2019. Some are of young Chinese learners whom I used to teach in my early years in China, some are of family and friends, others are of artists and curators with whom I have worked over the years in China.

SC was the main supporter of a special project in 2015 called ‘Intimate Transgressions Project ‘ . Several dozen artists contributed to this project which was exhibited in four cities, New York, Beijing ( Inter Gallery -798 Oct 2015) , Hangzhou and Taipei. It dealt with the challenging subject of violence against women during times of conflict, the narrative of the project began with the issue of the ‘comfort women’ and extended to a current global perspective.
