Since the late 1980s Chinese contemporary art has embraced many of the values of a global consciousness in the visual arts. From the use of nontraditional materials to subject matter reflecting a modern world, Chinese contemporary art is reflected in the generations coming to maturity in a post-Maoist era. As more and more students from China are choosing to come to America to study, this cross-pollination of Western and Eastern attitudes is evident. Popular culture motifs, the use of satire, as well as traditional painting styles encompass this exhibition, as another generation of emerging artists begin to find their way onto a global stage.
