Summary
"This book studies how Chinese artists appropriated from and interacted with the broad public in the post-Mao era (1976-) and how such encounters helped them develop a unique avant-gardism. Artists like Huang Yong Ping and Ai Weiwei and art collectives like the Long March and the Yangdeng Co-op are discussed"-- Provided by publisher.
