Summarization of Content

Exhibition catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition Between Past and Future: New Photography and video from China co-organized by David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago and the International Center of Photography, New York, in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Asia Society, New York. Curated by Wu Hung and Christopher Philips. 

Featuring 130 works by 60 Chinese artists, the exhibition reflected the adoption of media-based art by younger Chinese artists. Their works, often ambitious in scale and experimental in nature, reflect a range of highly individual responses to the unprecedented changes which took place in China's economy, society and culture.
