Contemporary Art Exhibition “Dialogue between Disney and Contemporary Art” is a special art exhibition which is to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Walt Disney. As the exhibition’s theme, “Dialogue between Disney and Contemporary Art” aims to explore the delicate relationship between the classic Disney art and the pioneer contemporary art. Disney appears in the public with its distinctive themes such as happiness, joy, love and dreams over the past century. These themes are not only Disney's eternal values, but also the important expression of the themes in the works created by the contemporary artists.
In the field of Contemporary Art, many artists’ works convey the classic ideological content such as happiness, dreams, hope and love. And the typical images from Disney have been important sources of inspiration for their creations. The artists created their own independent ways of expression and artistic discourse system depending on such classic and imperishability. The exhibition will make an ambiguous collision between Disney art and contemporary art and create a profound and imaginative space for the dialogue. This kind of positive and creative dialogue is of great exploring significance and social influence: the echoing of different artistic languages and the traction of different artistic expressions present the subtle relationship between Disney and Contemporary Art in front of the public, making the audience get unexpected experiences and feelings.
