China Power Station: Part II
08.09 - 02.12.2007

Contemporary Chinese art has established itself in the international arena of art via certain key artists. In preparing this exhibition, three curators, Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Julia Peyton-Jones, have delved into the growing Chinese art scene, and chosen young artists who represent the new generation of contemporary Chinese art. The exhibition presents a multiplicity of styles and expressions, and underscores the versatility and quality of today’s Chinese art.
The artists in the exhibition are Cao Fei, Chen Qiulin, Chu Yun, Duan Jianyu, Hu Xiangqian, Ji Weiyu, Kan Xuan, Liang Yue, Liu Chuang, Liu Ding, Liu Wei, Liu Weijian, Lu Chunsheng, Ou Ning, Pak Sheung Chuen, Qiu Anxiong, Song Tao, Sun Xun, Xu Zhen, Xue Tao, Yang Fudong, Zhang Ding, Zhou Tao and Zhou Zixi.
Part I of the exhibition was shown at London’s Battersea Power Station in Autumn, 2006. This exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and the Serpentine Gallery in London.
