Synopsis

This is an unprecedented volume that provides the first true foundation for considering the future of Chinese contemporary art. This book examines the dramatic evolution of contemporary art in mainland China during the first decade of the new century. Leading art historian Lu Peng presents the complex narrative of an entirely new art system, independent of the Communist Party and now aligned with the art market, that emerged in China between 2000 and the present day. This momentous transition saw many of the movements that characterized Chinese art in the 1980s and 90s fall by the wayside; while the generation of artists born in the 1950s and 1960s continued to contribute, younger artists born in the 1970s and 1980s began to express a new and highly original sensibility, based on personal experience and radical experimentation, that confronted the increasing fragmentation of Chinese society. "Fragmented Reality" is an unprecedented historical work that provides the first true foundation for considering what the future of Chinese contemporary art may bring.
