Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Tales of Our Time', this catalogue 'serves as a key conceptual extension of the exhibition, functioning as a hybrid of a traditional art exhibition publication and a fiction collection. Featuring two scholarly essays, artwork descriptions, and artist biographies, this volume presents an unconventional examination of the artists whose practices actively reposition and challenge current dialogues about Chinese art. In seven commissioned short stories, Chinese and American writers explore contemporary society through the art of storytelling.' – from Guggenheim’s website
The fiction authors are Wang Bang, Li Juan, Brian Kuan Wood, Hon Lai Chu, Ken Liu, Han Song, and Lo Yi-chin.
