Regular price $95.00On Sale $58.00

The Ludwig Museum in Koblenz, Germany, has positioned itself as one of the foremost exhibitors of contemporary Chinese art in the world. In this catalog, fifteen young artists display a dazzling variety of genres, styles and themes. The book presents Mu Boyan's sculpture, Fang Lijun's sardonic takes on traditional painting, Shi Chong's startling photorealism from, and Yue Minjun's ironic, broadly grinning figures. These and other renowned artists, including Xu Bing, Fang Lijun and Yan Pei-Ming, communicate ideas of alienation, disillusionment, and cynicism that point to a growing honesty emerging from China's younger citizens. At the same time, their artistic integrity, excellence and daring confirm that within this huge country lies a wealth of talent waiting to be discovered by the rest of the world.
