12 Artists of Post-1950's China

Course No. ACD 357  Credits: 3.0

In 2007, one of Yue Minjun's (b. 1962--) paintings, Execution, was sold for US$ 5.9 million dollars at Sotheby's in London. It became the most expensive work ever by a Chinese contemporary artist, and created a sensation over Chinese Contemporary Art in the Art and Business Worlds. This course will focus on 12 major artists (from Installation, painting, sculpture, performance art, photography and cinema), some of whose works were banned in China, but gained international recognition. The year of 1949 is the year of the split of the PROC (Mainland China) and ROC (Taiwan), and when the Communist Party gained its political legitimacy in Chinese history; we will thus consider with the artistic climate from the 1950s until the present time. All these 12 artists were born between the 1950s and 70s; ten of them went through the Cultural Revolution of the 1970s, and were in exile after the Tian'anmen Incident/Massacre in 1989. Visual Culture Emphasis course.
