Author Talk and Book Signing

Curator and critic Barbara Pollack speaks about her new book, Brand New Art from China: A Generation on the Rise (I.B. Tauris), the first to tell the story of how these 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. Many young Chinese artists have declared they are “not Chinese, but global”this book investigates just what that means for China, the art market, and the world.
