Meulensteen is proud to announce In a Perfect World…, a group show featuring a bold new generation of Chinese artists whose perspectives differ markedly from their acclaimed predecessors. These emerging artists are creating work informed by China’s rapid transformation in a language that addresses the world at large. Curated by James Elaine, past curator of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and the Drawing Center in New York, the exhibition encompasses painting, sculpture, video, and installation. As a curator Elaine has focused on emerging artists for 20 years and has been based in China since 2008 while investigating new art throughout Asia. In a Perfect World… marks the first time many of these emerging artists will be exhibiting in the United States and the first New York exhibition Elaine has organized since relocating to China.
