Unfinished Country: New Video from China, Program 2


Partnerships & Collaborations

Since the introduction of market-based economic reforms in 1978, China has become the world's fastest growing economy. Parallel to this economic growth has been the unprecedented production of art. While the majority of contemporary art practices have centered upon the traditional genres of painting and sculpture, the expansion of work in video and new media has been rapidly evolving.

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) exhibition Perspectives 180 – Unfinished Country: New Video from China presents a cross-section of work by a new generation of artists from China working in video and video installation. Featured artists are Chen Qiulin, Chen Zhou, Hu Xiaoyuan, Huang Ran, Jin Shan, Li Ming, Li Ran, Lu Yang, Ma Qiusha, Sun Xun, and Yan Xing.

A separate but integral component of the exhibition is a selection of cinematic shorts that will screen at Asia Society Texas Center. Join us for the second of the two-part screening!
