China Now Presented by Manulife

The inaugural China Now festival, presented by Manulife July 11–13, at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto is an unprecedented exploration of Chinese arts and culture. Guided by the artistic theme of legacy, this multi-disciplinary festival has invited artists from China and around the world to explore China’s artistic traditions and trajectory in the beautiful setting of Toronto’s central waterfront.

China’s artistic legacy is an ongoing interaction between its people, its history and its future. The nation itself is being influenced by the outside world in an unprecedented way while exerting a growing influence outside its borders. Meanwhile, the outside world untangles myths and misconceptions from the country’s reality. China Now helps decode contemporary Chinese art, how it has been shaped and how it is shaping the future.

Join us in Toronto for this diverse immersion in contemporary Chinese arts, culture and food. It’s a three-day festival full of unexpected surprises and delights.

China Now, presented by Manulife, is produced in partnership with Can4Culture and the China International Cultural Association, working with the China Arts and Entertainment Group, supported by the Ministry of Culture, People’s Republic of China.

Harboufront Centre — 235 Queens Quay West

Start: July 11, 2014
