The end of the Chinese Cultural Revolution opened an entirely new chapter for modern Chinese history, and certainly, for Chinese art too. China opened its door to the rest of the world, but it did not happen over night. In the late 1970s and 1980s, there was still a lot of oppression in China with only a limited range of knowledge or information available. Within such a circumstance, a dynamic avant-garde movement took place in this resistance of all the difficulties, and an incredible group of artists emerged and became to China what the 1960s cohort including Andy Warhol and Joseph Beuys was to America and Europe. This group of artists formed as a new generation of artists for China, who are committed to break the boundaries of ‘Chinese art’, and to extend their artistic and cultural understandings to the world.
