AAA has contributed archival research and loaned items from our collection to Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum for the exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the Worldwhich "presents work by 71 key artists and groups active across China and worldwide whose critical provocations aim to forge reality free from ideology, to establish the individual apart from the collective, and to define contemporary Chinese experience in universal terms."  

This week, we present printed matter related to the Experimental Exhibitions section of the show's archival materials.

A catalogue for a 1998 exhibition held at Art Now Studio, Yaojiayuan Village North, Chaoyang District, Beijing. Curated by Cai Qing and Feng Boyi.

"This exhibition catalogue features conceptual works by eleven contemporary Chinese artists. Feng Boyi, curator of show, introduces the exhibition as follows: 'The starting point for works in this exhibition was the present living climate as perceived and interpreted by artists using art as a conduit. The artists revealed their own attitudes towards the existence of the self and their own status through their reflections upon their own experiences. The resultant works combined to a widely varying view of the facts of life and materials. Using the forms of installation and performance, these represented not only the status of society in the 1990s as it is driven by social and economic change, but also the artists' personal understanding of the theme, of the traces of existence.' Biographical information of the artists is included."
