The Artist Chen Ping
The conference poster is showing a painting of Chen Ping, an artist born in China in 1962 and living and working in Hobart, Tasmania. Artist Chen Ping seeks to expose and return to the beginning of cultural values by re-examining the relationship between people, their environment and animals by discussing through his artistic practice three main themes, time, space and existence. For more information regarding the artist as well as his current exhibitions please click here.
The Organising team expresses their greatest gratitude towards Chen Ping for providing his painting for the conference poster.

The poems, and the works, are prayers for humanity through heaven and earth, and the final chapter is a prayer for the National Martyr, with the works bringing in current events and tragedies.
