The Revolution Continues
New Art in ChinaBook - 2008
China has emerged as the next frontier for contemporary art. Chinese artists, such as Zhang Xiaogang, Yue Minjun, Wang Guangyi, and Shen Shaomin, are producing some of today's most provocative new work. With China set to host the world at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2010 Shanghai World's Fair, enthusiasm for recent Chinese art continues to grow. This volume fills an important gap and provides badly needed context for the collector or connoisseur. Charles Saatchi, one of the savviest figures in the contemporary art scene, has built an unparalleled collection of new Chinese art which is presented here in glorious color reproduction on the eve of the opening of the new Saatchi Gallery in London's Chelsea. Not only is this the seminal book on the subject, it is the first book to bring contemporary Chinese art into focus.
