“Contemporary Chinese Art” (Dāng dài Zhōng guó yì shù 当代中国艺术) by Joan Lebold Cohen. ABSTRACT: From the nineteenth century to the present, Chinese art has undergone drastic changes that mirror earthshaking internal challenges to tradition and reflect as well a myriad of modernizing forces, many foreign, that have penetrated country and culture. Since 2000, Chinese artists have rapidly (if belatedly) garnered kudos (and high prices) in the world art market, a testament to their creativity and innovation. 4,800 words.
