For participation in a project undertaken by ART/OMI
The largest showcase of contemporary Chinese art from 1989 – 2008 in North America, surveying the development of Chinese experimental art from the end of Cold War to the age of globalization and China’s rise on the world stage. Works in the exhibition illustrate the role of artists as both agents and skeptics of China’s global presence against the political, social, and cultural transitions in the past two decades.
This exhibition is part of Asia Contemporary Art Week, October 5-26 in New York City. The work of six ACC grantees are included in this exhibition.
NOW explores how the diversity of current female artistic practice transcends notions of gender difference to offer hybrid perspectives on their socio-political environment. ACC alumni Li Shurui, Ma Quisha and Yin Xiuzhen are some of the most exciting female artists working in mainland China.
From giant installations and elusive sculptural pieces challenging and exploring everyday objects to powerful and other-worldly visual narratives, the huge variety of artworks found throughout the NOW programme, reflects the many viewpoints of artists in the wake of feminist movements of the past.
