A unique discussion of the last 30 years of Chinese history, this book highlights the link between art and society. The journey of Chinese art—from the mass-produced propaganda of the Mao era to the darling of the art market—mirrors the nation’s own momentous changes like few other disciplines. By visiting the studios of China’s art-world elite, depicting their rags-to-riches tales, and including stories from the critics, curators, and collectors who have been present since the beginning, Claire van den Heever paints a picture of contemporary Chinese art’s bumpy path to commercial and critical success.
