On the Edge: Contemporary Chinese Artists Encounter the West
"China's avant garde artists are doubly marginal. They are marginalized in their own country, and China's art is considered marginal by the international art community...This has given many Chinese artists — whether living in China or the West — a heightened appreciation of their tenuous situation. The result is the creation of a large body of bold experimental works dissecting the artist's position in the art world and China's position in the world." - Britta Erickson.
On the Edge featured some of the most important works of 12 contemporary Chinese artists. The present catalogue includes images of the artworks, artist biographies as well as selected bibliographies. The appendixes included provide in-depth documentation of the 3 projects carried out by Huang Yongping, Xu Bing and Zhou Tiehai.
