The Colors of Globalization

Recent cases of withdrawal into cultural identity have led many artists to ponder the phenomenon of cultural globalization. My Blue China sheds new light on the issues at hand, bringing together the works of thirteen internationally renowned contemporary artists selected for their ties to the history and culture of blue-and-white wares. The subject is an obvious choice for an exhibition at the Fondation Bernardaud, given its prominence in the annals of tableware and decoration. Yet My Blue China ventures well beyond decorative arts, for it documents the extent to which contemporary art is open to, and draws inspiration from, the story of blue-and-white wares. Inspired by its various forms – the Willow Pattern, Delft, Sèvres, Wedgwood and majolica – the artists incorporate these universal motifs into their painting, sculpture, digital photography,video or installation art. They show us just how much the blue-and-white tradition permeates and refreshes the esthetic and identity-based preoccupations that are still so persistent in the present context.
