Immutability and Fashion – Chinese Contemporary Art in the Midst of Changing Surroundings

Notes

Exhibition catalogue. Since the early 1980s, Chinese society has been reconstructed at a furious pace. The works presented here are concerned with the artists’ surrounding society and environment, as well as the question of how to establish a connection with the world ‘here and now’. Besides articles studying the various issues concerning the development of contemporary Chinese art, this publication also provides an introduction to each of the participating artists. In Chinese and English.
