“Thirty Years of Chinese Contemporary Art: The Moving Image in China 1988–2011”

When the Minsheng Art Museum opened in April 2010, it offered viewers an authoritative thirty-year survey of contemporary Chinese painting (as one might expect to find on permanent display in a national museum here, but never does).

Curated by He Juxing, Guo Xiaoyan, and Zhou Tiehai

When the Minsheng Art Museum opened in April 2010, it offered viewers an authoritative thirty-year survey of contemporary Chinese painting (as one might expect to find on permanent display in a national museum here, but never does). The Minsheng is now launching a second installment of its new-canon metanarrative, a survey of the moving image in China from its first appearance in this country as art, in 1988 (with 30 x 30 by Zhang Peili, in which he reassembles the fragments of a broken mirror), to the present, with recent works by Yang Fudong, Liu Chuang, and Song Dong. In all, some fifty artists will be represented in this comprehensive roundup, with more than seventy major works simultaneously on view.
