Forging a New Dialogue: Public Art in 1990s China

Volume 16, Number 6, November/December 2017
by Vivian Y. Li


Article Description

Vivian Y. Li's paper studies how Zhan Wang’s iconic Artificial Rock series and Wang Jin’s famous Ice, 96 Central China responded to the new market system of art and its commercialization through public sculpture. Their works allow us to better understand the emergent interaction among artists, the government, and commercial interests in shaping a new public.
