East meets west in this contemporary Asian art exhibition at the Museum of Brisbane. Located on level three of City Hall, there are a series of modern artworks from fourteen artists from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Based around traditional Chinese painting, the artists utilise some rather unusual techniques to express how they feel about changes that are taking place in their hometowns and around the world. The exhibition covers many different forms of mixed media such as photography, painting, video and animation, as well as the use of milk, shoes, biro, rice paper, tea and even 127 tonnes of Coca Cola.

The Ink Remix Exhibition is child-friendly with a (free) helpful kid's exhibition guide available at the front desk. There is a "discovery challenge" to keep younger visitors entertained. Young and old will be definitely entranced by Peng Hung Chih's "Canine Monk" series of a dog painting with its tongue.

Other pieces of interest are Peng Wei's knee high polo boots covered in beautifully painted rice paper, or Yang Yongliang's depiction of the city of Taipei sitting in a rice bowl, or Cindy Ng Sio Ieng's mesmerising moving poem made using milk, water and ink.

I loved the boots and the dog who licked a wall and exposed words.
