Crossing China introduces the highly fascinating art scene in China at the dawn of the 21st century. The book is conceived as a journey through the five major cultural capitals of the rapidly changing People's Republic of China: Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Each chapter introduces the major stakeholders in the interrelated fields of art, architecture and photography.

The breathtaking changes that have swept over this booming nation have generated an hitherto unheard of creative output that not only reflects the country's tremendous cultural breakthrough, but also and especially points towards a fascinating and extraordinary cultural scene with global influence. Gérard Goodrow, besides his many commitments in the world of art, was chairman of the jury for the Chinese Art Prize, the most important award for young contemporary art in China.

Text in English and German.

From the Inside Flap:

A lavishly illustrated book, CROSSING CHINA pre- sents a first comprehensive overview of the Chinese art and cultural scene, which not only provides the layman and amateur with profound insight, but also acts as a stimulator of new points of view for art experts and cultural enthusiasts alike. The book is thus targeted at, among others, all those who are interested in global art and architecture, collectors of international contemporary art, gallery owners and curators.

About the Author:

Born in New Jersey/USA in 1964, Ge?rard Goodrow moved to Cologne in 1987 and acquired German citizenship in 2004. He studied Anthropology and Art History at Rutgers University in New Jersey, History of Modern and Contemporary Art at the City University of New York, and Art History and German and English Philology at the University of Cologne. During his studies, Goodrow already gained his first experiences in the international art world through positions as, among others, Assistant to the Director at The New Museum of Contemporary Art and Registrar of the Don and Mera Rubell Collection in New York; as Guest Curator at the Kunst­Station Sankt Peter in Cologne, and as German Correspondent of the world's largest art magazine, ARTnews.
