Author: Lü Peng ; Bai Hua
Price: Not Available
Description: Milano: Charta, 2011. 29cm., pbk., 205pp. illus., most in color. English-Chinese text. Summary: Curated by Lü Peng, Pure Views gathers more than 80 pieces by both established and emerging artists from China. The title references an artwork by Song Dynasty painter Xia Gui, as a hint that contemporary Chinese art might usefully pay more attention to its historical precedents. While western modernism and postmodernism seemed to be dominant models in the 1980s and 1990s, since the new millennium a new contemporary Chinese art has evolved from what Lü Peng has called “the combination of resources extracted from traditional art and the artists' perceptions of contemporary society.” The artists include: Cao Jingping, Fang Lijun, Gao Wei, Guo Jin, He Sen, Hong Lei, Li Qing, Li Rui, Luo Quanmu, Pan Jian, Shang Yang, Shen Na, Shen Xiaotong, Tang Ke, Tu Hongtao, Wang Guangyi, Yang Mian, Yang Xun, Ye Yongqing, Yue Minjun, Zhang Xiaogang, Zhang Jian, and Zhao Qin.
