Young Chinese Artists: The Next Generation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The artists presented in this book came of age in a time when freedom of thought and expression was possible, if not exactly permitted. Unlike their predecessors, these artists do not feel a compulsion to politicize their work. The result is a generation that accepts materialism and economic growth as a part of the Chinese experience????????????????????????and this paradigm is apparent in their arresting and often shocking works of art. This book also gives voice to other representatives of this generation outside the art world, which puts the artists presented here and their works in a broader cultural context. This volume features nearly thirty artists, examples of their work, and short texts about their art and lives in China.
