This book explores the relationship between the ongoing urbanization in China and the production of contemporary Chinese art since the beginning of the twenty-first century. Wang provides a detailed analysis of artworks and methodologies of art-making from eight contemporary artists who employ a wide range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video, and performance. She also sheds light on the relationship between these artists and their sociocultural origins, investigating their provocative responses to various processes and problems brought about by Chinese urbanization. With this urbanization comes a fundamental shift of the philosophical and aesthetic foundations in the practice of Chinese art: from a strong affiliation with nature and countryside to one that is complexly associated with the city and the urban world.a€œChina Today: Misguided Socialism Plus Crony Capitalism.a€ New Perspectives Quarterly, vol.31, iss.1 (2014): 84a€“86. a€”a€”a€”. a€œThe Year 1989 and the Historical Roots of Neoliberalism in China.a€ Positions, vol, 12, no. 1 (2004): 7a€“70.
