Regeneration: Contemporary Chinese Art from China and the U.S.
Regeneration: Contemporary Chinese Art from China and the U.S. surveys the exciting and rapidly changing field of contemporary Chinese art in drawing, installation, painting, photography, video, prints and sculpture. The exhibition features the work of 26 artists, living in the U.S. and in China. Some have been prominent on the international scene during the last decade; others are new to Western audiences.
Many of the artists share thematic concerns in their use and appropriation of traditional Chinese art forms in new ways or their investigation of the momentous, ongoing social and cultural transformations in China. All the artists represent the vital and rapid regeneration of contemporary life and culture in contemporary China.
The exhibition was organized by the Samek Art Gallery, Bucknell University. The exhibition has been traveling nationally to positive response and reviews. Regeneration is accompanied by a four-color catalogue with an essay by distinguished Chinese avant-garde art critic and curator, Li Xianting.
