This volume is the answer to the growing interest in Chinese contemporary art, a phenomenon that is taking the international scene by storm.
In recent years, the many exhibitions devoted to Chinese artists have increasingly aroused the public’s interest. However, there is still a lack of books providing the keys for interpreting and understanding an artistic production that is as diversified as it is diverse. This volume aims to fill the gap by giving the reader a clear, informed overview of the main Chinese movements and artists that extends to cinema, videoart, and the latest trends in the work of emerging artists; as well as by homing in on the Taiwan and Hong Kong art scenes. On their many visits to China, the authors have been able to gather up-to-the-minute documentation and iconographical material that, in many cases, has never been seen in Italy before.
