about

Featuring 14 artists and one pair of artistic collaborators, What about the Art? Contemporary Art from China examines the contributions of Chinese artists to the international canon of contemporary art.

Including works by Hu Xiangqian, Hu Zhijun, Xu Bing, Jenova Chen, Li Liao, Jennifer Wen Ma, Zhou Chunya, Yang Fudong, Liang Shaoji, Xu Zhen, Liu Xiaodong, Liu Wei, Wang Jianwei, Huang Yong Ping and Sun Yuan & Peng Yu, this volume explores each artist’s unique formal language and methodology. Curated by New York–based, Chinese-born artist Cai Guo-Qiang to counter an over-simplified Western understanding of Chinese contemporary art as either solely market-driven or politically rebellious, What about the Art? aims to tell a different story. As Cai puts it: “What I always thought was missing from exhibitions about Chinese contemporary art was the artist’s individual creativity, and I wanted to single that out.”
