Thirty Years of Adventures: Art and Artists from 1979
Lu Peng's massive and ambitious "Thirty Years of Adventures" traces the momentous changes that have taken place in Chinese contemporary art since the country opened its doors to the west in 1979. At nearly 800 pages, and with nearly 800 color and black-and-white illustrations, it offers a thorough introduction to two generations of Chinese artists, each of whom is documented with reproductions and an extended critical introduction by Lu Peng, China's leading contemporary art critic and historian. Among the artists included are Miao Xiaochun, Qiu Anxiong, Li Qing, THEY Art Group, Zhang Jian, Shen Shaomin, Dong Wensheng, Gao Shiqiang, Li Jikai, Wei Guangqing, Zeng Fanzhi, Deng Jianjin, Zhang Xiaogang, Guo Wei, Guo Jin, Zhong Biao, Liu Dahong, Ding Yi, Xue Song and Feng Zhengjie. Lu Peng has produced an invaluable sourcebook for anyone interested in making sense of the tumultuous changes taking place in Chinese (including Taiwanese) art over the last 30 years.
