It is a catalogue for the solo exhibition entitled 'Classics' for Chinese artist Yang Mian held at Linda Gallery, Singapore, in 2007. Featured are a number of paintings and sculptural works that weave between ideas ranging from beauty and fashion, to consumerism and popular culture. Yang ultimately questions the formation of the ideology of standard as an instituted value.

Includes several interpretive essays and a biography of the artist.

Please note that there is another catalogue available in the library that details Yang Mian's solo exhibition of the same title held in Shanghai, also in 2007.
