ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a biannual DVD publication, is launching V18: EXPORT CHINA.
In recent decades, China has undergone massive social, economic and cultural change, altering its citizens’ view of the world and themselves. China’s artists have rapidly absorbed and reinterpreted the pluralistic styles of Western art, using them to translate the unique realities of life in contemporary China. In turn, Chinese art has become the subject of intense critical and commercial speculation in the West. We seek work from Chinese artists participating in this cross-cultural exchange, responding to it critically from an embedded perspective.
