AAA has contributed archival research and loaned items from our collection to Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum for the exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World, which "presents work by 71 key artists and groups active across China and worldwide whose critical provocations aim to forge reality free from ideology, to establish the individual apart from the collective, and to define contemporary Chinese experience in universal terms."  

This week, we present printed matter related to the Life in the Aftermath section of the show's archival materials that look at the exhibitions Garage Show and 45 Degree as a Reasonas well as proposals for exhibitions.

Note that in addition to the entries below, the 29 August 1988 issue of Fine Arts in China (an issue on proposal art edited by Liao Wen) from AAA Collection is on display.

Another Long March is the first survey in the West of conceptual and installation art, presenting eighteen artists from the leading Chinese art centres: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou. In comparison to Political Pop and Cynical Realist art in the post-1989 art scene, conceptual art produced by Chinese artists received relatively less coverage in the West. The accompanying essays in this exhibition catalogue, written by noted scholars and art critics, offer an insightful study and analysis of the development of Chinese conceptual art in the post-1989 period. Biographical information of participating artists is also included.
