Item description for Chinese Artists: Texts and Interviews (Chinese Edition) by Hou Hanru, Alanna Heiss & Harald Szeemann...
The Contemporary Chinese Art Awards (CCAA) are intended both to enhance public awareness of what Chinese artists contribute to contemporary culture and to encourage the development of the countrys most promising talent. This compendium includes work by and interviews with awardees such as Xu Zhen, who took the overall CCAA Prize for Excellence, Gu Dexin, the CCAA Achievement Prize winner, and Song Tao, winner of the Young Artist Prize. Those three portfolios alone offer a compelling cross-section of their milieu, bodies of work both young and extensive, in a wide variety of media. Along with five compatriots, including Yang Fudong, they demonstrate unequivocally the vitality of their growing contemporary art scene. With essays by Harald Szeemann and Alanna Heiss, among others.
