"Respected on both sides of the Pacific . . . [Wu Hung] has helped introduce Chinese avant-garde art to the West." -- Erik Eckholm * New York Times * "Recognized as one of the foremost authorities in both ancient and contemporary Chinese art, Wu Hung has served as a consultant on some of the most highly acclaimed exhibitions of current Chinese art to tour the United States." -- Garrett Holg * Chicago Sun-Times * "Perhaps the most useful guide to China's multilayered modern art worlds can be found in the careful source book Contemporary Chinese Art: Primary Documents by the University of Chicago professor and curator Wu Hung. In this detailed synopsis and catalog Wu succeeds in creating a broad series of definitions we can use to bring order to our own thoughts and to any recent Chinese works we may encounter." -- Jonathan Spence * New York Review of Books * "Edited by Wu and Wang, this is the first sourcebook and anthology to systematically collect and translate into English principal documents on contemporary Chinese art that are scattered in hard-to-find Chinese publications. This volume provides students and scholars in the Western world with invaluable access to firsthand textual materials for studying and researching contemporary Chinese art. . . . Essential." -- T. Li * Choice * "[D]estined to become a key sourcebook on mainland Chinese artists. . . . [R]eaders not fluent in Chinese can revel in 35 years' wroth of texts and information never before available to them." -- William Pym, Art Asia Pacific "Wu Hung's ingeniously selected montage of texts and images gives the reader an invaluable overview of Chinese art between 1976 and 2006. It can be savored on its own, or taken as a primer to read alongside the more widely available analyses of recent Chinese history and politics."-Jonathan Spence, author of The Search for Modern China "This volume is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to understand contemporary Chinese art, one of the most fascinating art scenes of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The documents are judiciously chosen, translated, and categorized, while an extensive historical chronicle and introductions provide accessible contextual information."-David Joselit, Carnegie Professor, History of Art, Yale University "Chinese contemporary art is the darling of the international art market today, but two decades ago who would have imagined this sudden phenomenon? And, what were the participants thinking? This indispensable reader shows us through selected writings from 1979 to 2000 by many of those who made it happen: the artists, the critics and theorists, the curators, the art historians. Even the table of contents imposes a sense of order on this complex art movement, and what follows will enlighten anyone who studies, buys, or simply looks at the Chinese art of our time."-Jerome Silbergeld, P.Y. & Kinmay W. Tang Professor of Chinese Art History; Director, Tang Center for East Asian Art, Princeton University "Edited by Wu and Wang, this is the first sourcebook and anthology to systematically collect and translate into English principal documents on contemporary Chinese art that are scattered in hard-to-find Chinese publications. This volume provides students and scholars in the Western world with invaluable access to firsthand textual materials for studying and researching contemporary Chinese art. . . . Essential." - T.

Reseña del editor:

Despite the liveliness and creativity of avant-garde Chinese art in the post-Mao era and its prominence in the world of international contemporary art, until now there has been no systematic introduction to this important work in any Western language. Moreover, most of the relevant primary documents have existed only in Chinese, scattered in hard-to-find publications. Contemporary Chinese Art remedies this situation by bringing together carefully selected primary texts in English translation. Arranged in chronological order, the texts guide readers through the development of avant-garde Chinese art from 1976 until 2006. Because experimental Chinese art emerged as a domestic phenomenon in the 1970s and 1980s and its subsequent development has been closely related to China's social and economical transformation, this volume focuses on art from mainland China. At the same time, it encompasses the activities of mainland artists residing overseas, since artists who emigrated in the 1980s and 1990s were often key participants in the early avant-garde movements and have continued to interact with the mainland art world. The primary documents include the manifestos of avant-garde groups, prefaces to important exhibitions, writings by representative artists, important critical and analytical essays, and even some official documents. Each chapter and section begins with a concise preface explaining the significance of the texts and providing the necessary historical background; the volume includes a timeline summarizing important art phenomena and related political events.Publication of the Museum of Modern Art
