Synopsis: The first book to focus on Chinese artists born in the 1980s, exploring the advent of a new generation appearing on the national and international scenes.
This visionary, forward-looking selection of twenty young artists is the work of two key figures in China?s art scene, namely Jérôme Sans, co-founder of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and former director of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, and Jean-Marc Decrop, a specialist in contemporary Chinese art with the French and European Chamber of Experts. Born in a country in the full swing of economic, social, and urban change, and benefiting from global access to information and new technologies, these artists have broken free from any artistic legacy to draw upon a transversal, worldwide culture. Embodying the dynamics and diversity of methods and styles, so vast as to be entirely unprecedented in China, these artworks and approaches attest to the extraordinary wealth and accuracy of fresh perspectives on today?s world. One of the most vibrant in the world, this new art scene is reinventing China?s cultural history.
Product Description: This groundbreaking survey introduces twenty emerging talents from the Chinese contemporary art scene. While the generation of artists who came of age during China?s Cultural Revolution dominated the market in the 2000s, younger artists are now gaining international attention. After a decade of underground art development, often experimenting with cutting-edge technologies, the experiences of this new generation are more rooted in the daily and inherent competition of urban life and the rapid social changes that China has gone through.
