Item description for New China, New Art by Richard Vine...
Overview Organized by medium and reflecting the social and economic changes of modern China, introduces the achievements and works of noted contemporary Chinese artists.
Publishers Description Contemporary Chinese Art has exploded onto the international scene, attracting intense critical attention and soaring market responses. The fast-paced social and economic transformation of the People's Republic of China is reflected by a startling liberalization in subject matter, frenetic formal experimentation, canny appropriation of Western themes and mediums, a struggle to preserve and express Chinese identity in a global context, and rapid commercialization that at once embraces and challenges the international gallery and auction systems. Here for the first time in a medium-by-medium critical survey, Richard Vine, a leading authority on the new Chinese art, provides an insider's introduction to this vitally important artistic field.
