These conceptual, mixed-media works are organized as a series of 11 one-person presentations of leading contemporary Chinese artists. Their photo-based works relate to and reflect major aesthetic and social issues in Chinese art and society today: memory, interpretation/appropriation of Chinese art history, conception of self and culture; urbanization and transformation of space; and questions of gender; religion; the public voice and private life. The works are predominantly color, large-scale, staged, constructed, and digitally produced. They include sculpture, installation, and video.
