Shu:Reinventing Books in Contemporary Chinese Art
J.May Lee Barrett
China Institute Gallery
This catalogue was published to accompany the two-part exhibition Shu: Reinventing Books in Contemporary Chinese Art, held at China Institute Gallery in 2006 and 2007. The individual artists in this exhibition have used the book, both as subject and as medium, to express their concerns, confusion, aspirations, disappointments, and their visions. Each of them, in their own way, invested this ancient Chinese cultural icon with contemporary concepts and sensibilities. The catalogue includes essay by Wu Hung, artist biographies and artist statements.
