New Art from China: Post-1989
Valerie Doran/Melanie Pong
Marlborough Fine Art Ltd, London, UK
Catalogue of joint exhibition at Marlborough Fine Art (London) Ltd in 1994. Johnson Chang wrote, 'Changes in China's social and cultural world since 1989 are reflected in the arts scene. China's New Art encapsulates pictorially the new spirit of the 90s. It has a light side that glamourizes the mundane, teases the dogmatic, and pokes fun at high station, and more disturbed, darker side that takes an almost perverse pleasure in displaying the pain of disillusionment and the smarting wounds of maimed souls.' Images of works in the catalogue are accompanied by individual texts.
