Contemporary Chinese Art: Looking Back, Looking Forward
This talk will discuss contemporary art in China over the course of the last four decades. China opened its door to the outside world after the Cultural Revolution, and the resulting new political and social environment provided a rich background for artistic experimentations. Christina Yu Yu will trace the development of art in China from the late 1970s to today, including artists working in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, as well as those of the diaspora.
