“Beyond the Sea: International Contemporary Art Exhibition,” a new exhibition featuring paintings, installations and photographic works by 28 artists, is being held at E Museum of Contemporary Art.

The 28 artists are Georg Baselitz, Daniel Richter, Jay Meuser, Enrico Bach, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Harry Callahan, Lisette Model, Elliott Erwitt, Jerry Uelsmann, Mary Ellen Mark, Nino Migliori, Riet van der Linden, Alfred Stieglitz, Wynn Bullock, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Luo Zhongli, Zhou Chunya, Liang Shaoji, Liang Quan, Ye Yongqing, Miao Xiaochun, Li Di, Zhou Li, Xue Feng, Sang Huoyao, Tian Wei, Yu Yang and Qin Wan.

German painter Baselitz is seen as a revolutionary artist as he draws the viewer’s attention to his works by making them think and sparking their interest. Throughout his career, Baselitz has varied his style, ranging from layering to focusing on greater lucidity and smooth changes.

Chinese artist Luo imbues his artistic conception with folk aestheticism which forms a vocabulary of painting that is both distinct and unique to him. In more than 40 years of artistic creation, his art has consistently centered on the eternal themes of the reality of human nature and love.

The exhibition is also showcasing classic photos by late masters including Cartier-Bresson, Model, Bullock, Callahan and Stieglitz. Cartier-Bresson was a humanist photographer considered a master of candid photography, and an early user of 35 mm film. He pioneered the genre of street photography, and conceived of photography as capturing a decisive moment. His work has influenced many photographers.

Bullock’s work is included in over 90 major museum collections around the world. He published numerous books and is mentioned in all of the standard histories of modern photography.
