Publisher's Summary:
This book is the first to consider the outpouring of photo-based art created in China since the mid-1990s. Ambitious in scale and experimental in nature, these works reflect the turn toward media-based art that characterizes the 'next generation' of younger Chinese artists. In addition to fostering a new understanding of contemporary Chinese art, "Between Past and Future" also provokes fresh and timely insights into the dynamics of Chinese culture in the 21st century.
