Beyond the Three Perfections

7 October 2017 – 5 January 2018

Coach House (Dublin Castle Gardens)

Extended until January!

The tradition of the ‘three perfections’, unifying poetry, painting and calligraphy in a single art work captured the cultural imagination during what was the most culturally brilliant era in imperial Chinese history, the Song dynasty (960 – 1279 AD). Drawing inspiration from tradition, this exhibition brings together the poetry of President Michael D. Higgins; the sculpture of the Director of the National Art Museum of China and sculptor, Professor Wu Weishan; the calligraphic works of renowned Chinese calligrapher 
Wei Ligang and of Irish calligrapher Patty Hudak; as well as previously unseen works of the eminent Irish modern artist Patrick Scott. In this way, Beyond the Three Perfections offers a unique artistic collaboration and anchoring point to the evolving Sino-Irish relationship, for two nations each steeped in thousands of years of cultural tradition.
