Visual Arts, Representations and Interventions in Contemporary China
China's unprecedented urbanization in the past two decades has a far-reaching impact on all forms and spheres of visual arts; this stimulating collection of essays offers a multifaceted investigation of the dynamic interrelations between visual arts and representation interdependent to urban spaces in the country since the 1990s. Through visual, spatial, and temporal analyses, the book details a wide range of cases including both official and independent forms of visual arts, such as photography, paintings, propaganda, documentaries, and TV series by focusing on the questions of transitions, representations, place-making, and intervention. The repercussions are felt from agencies, subject matters, themes, and styles to policies, new strategies and spaces of production, dissemination, use and reception. Ultimately, as this book demonstrates, the transformations of the urban space and the various issues associated with urbanization, such as population increase, high mobility, dislocation as well as corruption, inequality, and environmental deterioration, have been repeatedly addressed in Chinese visual arts and reflected in urban built environment.
