|In the politically responsive spirit of Goya,
internationally acclaimed contemporary artists have gathered together to remember the
tragic events which took place in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China, June 4, 1989.
The purpose of this exhibition is to commemorate the anniversary of this political struggle for democracy.
It is the occasion to explore the contemporary artistic expression as a vehicle for political commentary.
The underlying universal theme of the exhibition is, in essence, the yearning for freedom - freedom from oppression - the freedom to express oneself unrestrained by political force.
It is this sentiment that joined the Chinese students together - a democratic movement costing many of them their lives on June fourth, 1989.
The exhibition will tour internationally and the final exhibit will take place in Beijing, China, after which the art-work will be given as a memento to the Chinese people.
