Wallner Gallery Opening Hours Monday - Saturday 9am - 5pm (until 11pm on performance evenings) Sundays 10am - 5pm This exhibition presents a selection of facsimilies of Chinese state campaign posters issued under the current leadership of Xi Jingping. 'China Dream' refers to a spirit of national rejuvenation with patriotism and innovation at its core. The campaign posters exhibited here promote classic Confucian family values including respect for the elderly, compassion for others, peace and harmony. They use pre-existing artworks, carefully selected to carry particular poems and slogans and encompass a wide range of styles including traditional folk art such as papercuts, woodblock prints and brush painting.
