  • The Fourth Age of Man-Contemporary Art in Jinguashi

    Date 11/09-2019/03/03
    Venue Jinshuei Special Exhibition Hall, Gold Refining Building, Four cottages,
    Mining Square, Golden Hall, Level 2

    In Metamorphoses, the renowned Roman poet Ovid divided the humanity into four successive ages: Golden, Silver, Bronze and Iron. In the Golden Age, people lived peacefully with the nature, but during the Iron Age, men learn to demarcate nations with boundaries; they become warlike and master the skills of mining to dig out the riches of the earth. The Fourth Age of Man – Contemporary Art in Jinguashi invites five contemporary artists to explore mining development and its social impacts on communities. Through their interpretations of people, landscape, material culture and the physical remains of industrial mining heritage, the exhibition presents the Iron Age from a refreshing perspective that is soul-searchingly candid.
