NEW FIGURATION: CHAPTER 1
This exhibition seeks to give a subjective survey of young figurative artists in China. Part of the post '77 generation, these artists have grown up away from the politically disturbed environment of their elders in a more selfish and fragmented context. As a result they have a more personal approach to art. Moreover, a greater amount of western material available have given them a broader range of inspirations, including from western artists. This is the first exhibition of a series featuring young Chinese artists presented by the gallery.
