This publication is produced on the occasion of Chinese artist Tan Ping's solo exhibition of the same title at the National Art Museum of China in December 2012.
Showing one single work, +40m, which stretches into over 40 metres long, Tan Ping manifests his practice of abstraction that generates serious thinking and reflections upon the state of history of contemporary art not only in China, but also other non-Western countries, whose art's contemporaneity is often overdetermined by a hegemonic framework inherited by the ideological West during the (post)colonial era.
Includes interpretive essays, a timeline of +40m vis-à-vis Tan's life, a series of comparisons with other abstract works by Western masters, as well as his biography.
