BOOK SIGNING: Brand New Art From China
Invite your friends! This event is free and open to the public.
Barbara Pollack is an award-winning journalist, art critic, and curator who is one of the world's leading authorities on contemporary Chinese art. She will talk about her recent book, Brand New Art From China, telling the story of how Chinese millennials, fast becoming global art superstars, negotiate their cultural heritage, and what this means for China's impact on the future of global culture.
Barbara Pollack's writing has appeared in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Village Voice, Artnews, Art in America, among many other publications. She has also written several ground-breaking monographs on young Chinese artists, including the first published artist profile of Ai Weiwei for Artnews in 2005. She lectures regularly across the United States and Asia, and was the keynote speaker at 2018's Art Basel Hong Kong.
"Brand New Art from China is frank, honest, and full of passionâ€¦ The author offers a rare and precise insight into a nation and culture that is often described by so-called outsiders with an imbalanced view or by confused misinterpretations."
- Ai Weiwei
