Chinese contemporary artists make a huge difference when it comes to provocative art, as if their bigger, bolder, shinier and talkative pieces were directly challenging their country’s politics.
Palazzo Reale (in Milan, Italy) is hosting “China. Rinascita contemporanea” until next February 7th….. from photography, conceptual researches or contemporary paintings to performances, the “Cartoon Generation” or the latest video artist from today’s Chinese art scene: more than 180 pieces in total.
Divided in 7 sections the exhibition summarizes & documents the Chinese artistic movement from the first decade of this new century, a tradition-breaking language with continuous references to the occidental culture but always maintaining the local tradition in mind.
Artists such as Zhang Xiaogang (considered a painting master), Feng Zhengjie, Ma Liuming, Huang Yan or the sometimes scary Chen Ke are just a few of those 50 contemporary Chinese visions you should visit, critic and then tell us what you think… if you happen to be in Milano before February 7th.
