Chasing Flames— 15 Chinese Contemporary Artists

September 17 – November 15, 2009

Eli Klein Fine Art is pleased to present Chasing Flames, an exhibition that brings together the work of fifteen of China’s most renowned avant garde artists:

Chen Danqing, Fang Lijun, Feng Zhengjie, Guo Wei, the Luo Brothers, Qi Zhilong, Qin Feng, Wang Guangyi, Xia Xing, Yang Qian, Yang Shaobin, Zhang Dali, Zhang Xiaogang, Zhao Nengzhi, Zhou Chunya

The works of these artists span the three-decade history of Chinese contemporary art and reflect the shifts in narrative from the critical art of the’85 New Wave post-Cultural Revolution, to the more sarcastic works of Cynical Realism and Political Pop post-Tiananmen, to the increasingly self-reflective pieces that characterize more recent years as artists respond to profound socio-economic changes, consumerism and globalization, while attempting to define their individuality in a rapidly-changing reality.
