A “Domestic Turn:” Chinese Experimental Art in the 1990s
Volume 1, Number 3, November 2002
by Wu Hung
Reinterpretation: A Decade of Experimental Chinese Art (1990-2000), the First Guangzhou Triennial organized by the Guangdong Art Museum, provides a comprehensive survey and attempts a systematic explanation of Chinese experimental art of the period. The three main themes of the exhibition are “Memory and Reality,” “Self and Environment,” and “Global and Local.” This essay discusses the first two themes, which together point to a new direction in Chinese experimental art of the 1990s – a “domestic turn” that transformed experimental art into a powerful vehicle of social critique.
