Synopsis: This fascinating look at the Sigg and
M+ Sigg Collections, one of the largest, most
comprehensive and important collection
of contemporary Chinese art in the world,
provides the perfect springboard to explore
the role of cultural identity in today's global
art world. Spanning forty years and bringing together works by artists
such as Ai Weiwei, Cao Fei, and Fang Lijun, this volume follows
the development of contemporary art in China in the new
millennium. Focusing on recent acquisitions of the Sigg and
M+ Sigg Collections, the book examines them through the
prism of cultural globalization and cultural homogeneity. For
the younger generation of artists presented in this book, a
global art market and global network are part of the norm and
their work reflects these conditions. At the same time, Chinese
art is now an established entity in contemporary art, and many
Chinese artists are exploring what is specifically "Chinese"
in their work and turning to the traditions of the past. This
groundbreaking volume unfolds a new panorama of Chinese
art and assesses how attitudes toward Chinese contemporary
art have evolved.
