Beyond the Open Door: Contemporary Paintings From the People's Republic of China
Pacific Art Museum,Pasedena, California
This exhibition is the first extensive sampling of the varied work of some of the most talented and venturesome young artists in China, as the country emerged from a harrowing half century of political and social upheavals to open itself up to modern Western technology and culture. The organizer of the exhibition and contributors in the accompanying essays look at the effect the more liberal atmosphere had on the development of art in China’s three major cultural centres: Shanghai, Hangzhou and Nanjing in the early 80s.
