Abstract (English)

"Tradition in Chinese contemporary art is transformed by individual experiences, contemporary challenges and present-day concerns. This fully illustrated publication explores the work of three generations of Chinese artists who have been trained in both Western art history and Chinese tradition, and who engage with their cultural past as a continuation into the contemporary.
Featuring new photography and essays by leading scholars, this publication moves from literal depictions of traditional culture to more subtle representations that are equally influenced by Chinese heritage." -- Publisher's website.
