Synopsis:

The first monograph conceived for the international market devoted to one of the most important Chinese contemporary artists. Known throughout the world, above all for his cycle Great Criticism, in which he juxtaposes images of Chinese propaganda with the most famous Western brands, and later for his installations on the theme of the Cold War, Wang Guangyi is considered one of the emblems of new China because his work underlines, through new language forms, the deep social changes the country is experiencing. This monograph includes more than 400 color images, an essay by the curator, and an anthology of the most important writings by and on the artist, revealing for the first time the entire œuvre of Wang Guangyi, whose works are in the collections of the most important museums and foundations in the world.

About the Author:

Demetrio Paparoni, critic and curator, has edited numerous monographs and contributed to catalogs of artists such as Anish Kapoor, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, and Edward Hopper.

Book Description Skira, 2013. Condition: new. English text. Milano, 2013; hardback, pp. 352, 400 ill. col., cm 24x28. Wang Guangyi is considered one of the emblems of new China, because his work underlines, through new expressive language forms, the deep social changes the country is experiencing. This monograph reveals for the first time the entire oeuvre of the artist, whose works are classified in China under the genre of Political Pop, and are kept in the collections of the most important museums and foundations in the world. Born in Heilongjiang Province in 1956, Wang Guangyi became one of the great stars of contemporary Chinese art through his Great Criticism series. Through the juxtaposition of two definitely opposing ideologies, each represented through iconic symbols, Guangyi criticises Communism and consumerism while negating both by combining them skilfully. Stylistically merging the government-enforced aesthetic of Agitprop with the kitsch sensibility of American Pop, Guangyi's work adopts the cold-war language of the 1960s to ironically examine the contemporary issues of globalisation. Amalgamating, confusing and blurring opposing ideological beliefs, Guangyi's billboard-sized canvases readily sell out national valour, while simultaneously devaluing status symbol luxury for the proletariat cause.
