Since the end of the Cultural Revolution a whole new generation of artists has emerged in mainland China. This striking new volume presents seventy five artworks by twenty seven of these young Chinese artists. Covering all media, works by artists and collectives such as Birdhead, Double Fly, Irrelevant Commission, Liu Di, and Ma Qiusha have opened a window onto a new China, a society that has undergone rapid industrialization and globalization in the past two decades.
Author Barbara Pollack is a New-York-based independent curator, writer, and journalist, and a leading expert on contemporary Chinese art. She serves as consultant to the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting of New Champions in China.
