This is the first U.S. exhibition to focus solely on the new post-Mao generation of Chinese artists, who work in a variety of media and address issues of alienation, self-definition, cynicism, and rebellion. Almost all of the artists are products of the One-Child Policy and have grown up in a country with a high-powered market economy. These artists have grown up in an international milieu, liberated from stereotypes of an east-west dichotomy. They speak volumes about China, a society that has undergone rapid industrialization and globalization in the past two decades. As such, this exhibition is a window on to this new China with new technologies, exhibition strategies, and reinvention of traditional practices that reflect the impact that rapid development has had on these artists’ lives.

My Generation is curated by Barbara Pollack, and is co-presented in two venues simultaneously through a unique collaboration with the Tampa Museum of Art.
