'In the past decade contemporary Chinese art has exploded onto the international scene, attracting intense critical attention and soaring market responses. The fast-paced social and economic transformation of the People's Republic of China is reflected by a startling liberalisation in subject matter, frenetic formal experimentation, canny appropriation of Western themes and mediums, a struggle to preserve and express Chinese identity in a global context, and rapid commercialisation that at once embraces and challenges the international gallery and auction systems. Now fully updated and revised, Richard Vine's groundbreaking critical survey New China, New Art takes a medium-by-medium approach to this vitally important artistic field, featuring illustrations of works by some 150 established and emerging artists.'
