Interview with Arnold Chang 被误解的传统
“ There is a misconception about tradition. People think tradition means past, but actually tradition is ongoing. And the opposite of tradition is not contemporary. One can be both contemporary and traditional. In fact, in order to really understand tradition, it is imperative that you find a way to make it relevant and make it continue into the present and the future. “
