The Confucius Institute is delighted to bring this fascinating exhibition to Manchester, telling the story of four generations of printmakers from Heilongjiang Province in the north-east of China. Prints from this region are widely known as the Great Northern Wildness School, which is one of the most influential and characteristic schools in the Chinese art arena. The exhibition tells the story of four generations of printmakers and, in doing so, provides a look back at 60 years of history that this area of China has experienced.
