- Publisher's Summary
- "Transience: Chinese Experimental Art at the End of the Twentieth Century" is an exhibition organized by The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Chicago. Guest curator Wu Hung, an expert on ancient and contemporary Chinese art, identified three critical aspects of artistic production in China and focused the exhibition to explore those themes - "Demystification", "Ruins", and "Transience". The text concentrates on individual artists through close readings of specific works, constituting a voice in the discussion about contemporary Chinese art and its place in post-national cultural understanding.
