Centripetal Force – Four Dimensions of Chinese Contemporary Artists 

In the face of the changes in social and art environment in China, recent observation and research of Chinese emerging artists have noticed that Chinese emerging artists have been undertaking new attempts and making new breakthroughs on the level of form, medium and underlying concepts. Accompanied by the concurrent shift of mentality in art creation, Chinese emerging artists are also disposed to focus on their own inner world as opposed to the grand social narratives.

Based on this major change of artistic inclination, “Centripetal Force: Four Dimensions of China’s Emerging Artists” seeks to provide interpretations of the economy and culture of contemporary Chinese society by virtue of the exhibited items, with the aim of displaying an updated, comprehensive image of and achievements made by Chinese emerging artists.

Participating artists include: Cheng Baozhong, Chi Qun, Feng Yichen, Hao Shiming, Kang Chunhui, Peng Yong, Su Yi, Sun Hao, Wang Min, Wang Qifan, Xie Tianzhuo, Xu Hongxiang, Zhu Peihong, ZhuoMian Art.

Curated by: Jerry Song
