Legacy features a selection of conceptual photography from China by established and emerging Chinese artists, who work across a range of media, including performance art, sculpture, video and installation. Photography in Chinese contemporary art is one of the most innovative and ground-breaking forms that many artists have turned to in recent years. This exhibition reflects two significant developments in contemporary work: the appropriation of classical Chinese culture into a highly contemporary idiom through the use of diverse materials; and the spectacular presentation of the artist's body within photography as a powerful by-product of performance art. Artist biographies are provided in the catalogue.
