Teaching Chinese Art: your portal to interviews, articles, reviews connecting you with the world of contemporary art in China
Half the Sky: Conversations with Women Artists in China
available now from Piper Press and good bookstores.
The dynamic artistic centres of China are producing some of the most interesting and compelling contemporary art of our time. But there are fascinating stories as yet insufficiently told: the stories of women artists. It was Chairman Mao who said, ‘Women hold up half the sky.’ This book reveals the work and lives of thirty-two artists who are doing just that.
