'From its underground genesis during the Cultural Revolution, contemporary Chinese art has become a dynamic and hugely influential force in a globalized art world where the distinctions between Eastern and Western civilization are rapidly collapsing. In this first systematic introduction to the topic, Wu Hung provides a much-needed narrative of the development of Chinese art across all media from the 1970s to the 2000s, a time-span characterized by racial, social, political and economic change in China.

The book introduces the readers to key art movements, styles and trends, important artists and art projects, experimental exhibitions and avant-garde publications, and China's growing number of new museums, galleries and alternative art spaces.' - excerpted from front flap.
