My Generation: Young Chinese Artists


The first U.S. exhibition to focus solely on the new post-Mao generation of Chinese artists offers a look at how China’s mega-development has impacted its youth culture and spawned new art trends. At times exuberant and at other times ruminating, this exhibition of 27 emerging artists from mainland China provides a cultural exchange and a dialogue about the Chinese artist’s place in a globalized art world.

This is co-presented in two venues simultaneously through a unique collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg.

This Exhibition will be on view at the following venues for these dates:

  • Tampa Museum of Art and Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, June 7 – September 28, 2014
  • Oklahoma City Museum of Art, October 25, 2014 – January 18, 2015
  • Orange County Museum of Art (Newport Beach, CA), June 26 – October 11, 2015

 See below for recent press on the show and/or artists included in the show.  To receive the My Generation: Young Chinese Artists press kit, please contact Nancy Seijas-Kipnis.
