Chinese Video Now

(2007) Chinese Video Now

Record type: Art Design Item


Chinese Video Now offers an exhilarating snapshot of a new generation of young artists working in China. Digital video technology lies at the heart of this extensive creative scene, whose ascent into the global arena reflects a wider Western upsurge of interest in all things China. The work of thirteen artists will feature across the gallery in a network of projections and monitor screens. Works include 8gg’s News Dance, 2005, a visceral re-mix of CCTV and news footage, Li Songhua’s Keynote Speech, 2005, in which his four year-old child re-enacts a political speech by Chinese President Hu Jintao, Meng Jin’s explorations of abandoned industrial spaces and much more
