about this item

The first comprehensive overview of the career output of China's best-known female multimedia artist, who has observed, recorded, and challenged her country's dramatic transformation over the last 20 years. A new generation of artists emerged in 1980s China and they insisted on sweeping aside the curtain of secrecy surrounding their country. Award-winning photographer Xing Danwen is part of that generation. Over the course of more than 20 years she has contemplated the seismic transformations in Chinese culture and society and has projected those realities in her lens-based conceptual practice. At once deeply personal and political, Xing's richly varied photographs touch upon issues such as sociocultural dislocation, tensions between globalization and tradition, environmental disasters and unbridled development, and the disconnection between desire and reality that typically suffuses urban life.
