Synopsis: The yardstick by which we evaluate our culture should be based on our own experience. And what could be a richer cultural resource from which to derive meaning than the socialist visual experience.... --Wang Guangyi This retrospective look at the 17-year oeuvre of one of the giants of Chinese contemporary art forms a rich tapestry of imagery, ideas, and ideology. From the mid-80s onward, Wang Guangyi has stood as a primary role model for his fellow artists, beginning with his parodies of masterpieces from the history of Western art, including Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin and Child with St. Anne and Jacques-Louis David's Marat. His large-scale Mao paintings mocked propaganda imagery, and from there he moved on to Great Criticism, his internationally recognizable Pop reworking of cultural revolution sloganism.
