Published on the occasion of the largest exhibition of contemporary art from China ever mounted in North America, organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 'Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World' explores recent experimental art from 1989 to 2008, arguably the most transformative period of modern Chinese and recent world history.00Featuring over 150 iconic and lesser-known artworks by more than 70 artists and collectives, this catalog offers an interpretative survey of Chinese experimental art framed by the geopolitical dynamics attending the end of the Cold War, the spread of globalization and the rise of China. Critical essays explore how Chinese artists have been both agents and skeptics of China?s arrival as a global presence, while an extensive entry section offers detailed analysis on works made in a broad range of experimental mediums, including film and video, ink, installation, land art and performance, as well as painting and photography. 00Exhibition: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, United States (06.10.2017 - 07.01.2018).

In this first systematic introduction to contemporary Chinese art, Wu Hung provides an accessible, focused and much-needed narrative of the development of Chinese art across all media from the 1970s to the 2000s. From its underground genesis during the Cultural Revolution (1966-76), contemporary Chinese art has become a dynamic and hugely influential force in a globalized art world where the distinctions between Eastern and Western culture are rapidly collapsing. The book is a richly illustrated and easy-to-navigate chronological survey that considers contemporary Chinese art both in the context of Chinas specific historical experiences and in a global arena. Wu Hung explores the emergence of avant-garde or contemporary art as opposed to officially sanctioned art in the public sphere after the Cultural Revolution; the mobilization by young artists and critics of a nationwide avant-garde movement in the mid-1980s; the re-emphasis on individual creativity in the late 1980s, the heightened spirit of experimentation of the 1990s; and the more recent identification of Chinese artists, such as Ai Weiwei, as global citizens who create works for an international audience.

The Chinese tradition of "ink art" stretches far beyond works in ink, to embrace a set of aesthetic principles centered on renewal and reinterpretation of the past. The 80 works, by 40 contemporary artists, featured in Ink Art range from variations on the written word to radical abstractions to contemporary landscapes, and represent media as diverse as photography, video, ceramic, wood, bronze, and stainless steel--as well as traditional ink (which might be on cardboard, polyester, or the human body). They include such iconic pieces as Book from the Sky by Xu Bing and Han Jar Overpainted with Coca Cola Logo by Ai Weiwei, "pseudo-characters" by Gu Wenda, handscrolls by Liu Dan, and videos and animation by Qiu Anxiong and Chen Shaoxiong. The illuminating texts give a history of contemporary Chinese ink painting and how it is perceived in the West. A discussion of the works themselves show how they respond to, subvert, or reinterpret the traditional idioms to define a modern artistic identity that remains both Chinese and global.

  • Avant-propos / Fabrice Hergott -- Zeng Fanzhi.

"Zeng Fanzhi utilise depuis les années 1990 un langage original, marqué par son évidente filiation à l'art asiatique ainsi que par les nombreuses influences occidentales parvenues jusqu'à lui. En multipliant les thèmes et les styles, l'artiste fait preuve d'une recherche incessante, tant picturale qu'intellectuelle, et d'une remarquable maîtrise. La confrontation à ses peintures laisse le spectateur seul face à une infinité, comme une plongée ou une étreinte dans le monde intérieur de l'artiste."--P. [4] of cover.

In 2008, Asia stormed the citadel of the New Yorkart world when two major museums presented retrospectives of Asian contemporaryartists: Cai Guo-Qiang at the Guggenheim Museum and Takashi Murakami at theBrooklyn Museum. Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, a painting by Zeng Fanzhi sold for $9.5 million, settinga new world auction record for Chinese contemporary art. The Western art worldis still coming to grips with the challenge: it is all about Asia now. This book is the first anthology ofcritical writings to map the shift in both the nature and the reception ofAsian art over the past twenty years. Offering texts by leading figures in thefield (mostly Asian), and including more than fifty illustrations in color andblack and white, it covers developments in East Asia (including China, Korea, andJapan), South Asia (including India and Pakistan), and Southeast Asia (includingVietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand). Together, the twenty-three textsposit ahistorical and pan-Asian response to the question, "What is Asiancontemporary art?" Considering such topics as Asian modernism ("productivemistranslation" of the European original), Asian cubism, and thecurating, collecting, and criticism of Asian contemporary art, this bookpromises to be a foundational reference for many years to come.

Despite the liveliness and creativity of avant-garde Chinese art in the post-Mao era, and its prominence in the world of international contemporary art, until now there has been no systematic introduction this important work in any Western language. Moreover, most of the relevant primary documents have existed only in Chinese, scattered in hard-to-find publications. Contemporary Chinese Art remedies this situation by bringing together carefully selected primary texts in English translation. Arranged in chronological order, the texts guide readers through the development of avant-garde Chinese art from 1976 until 2006. Because experimental Chinese art emerged as a domestic phenomenon in the 1970s and 1980s, and its subsequent development has been closely related to China's social and economical transformation, this volume focuses on art from mainland China. At the same time, its purview encompasses the activities of mainland artists residing overseas, since artists who emigrated in the 1980s and 1990s were often key participants in the early avant-garde movements and have continued to interact with the mainland art world. The primary documents include the manifestos of avant-garde groups, prefaces to important exhibitions, writings by representative artists, important critical and analytical essays, and even some official documents. Each chapter and section begins with a concise preface explaining the significance of the texts while providing the necessary historical background, and the volume includes a chronicle summarizing important art phenomena and related political events.
