Special Issue: Gender in Contemporary Chinese Art

Aims & Scope

The Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art seeks to explore the relationship between contemporary art and Chinese cultural identity in its broadest sense. This peer-reviewed journal provides a forum for critical debate into Zhongguo dangdai yishu, the ‘avant-garde', experimental and museum-based visual art produced as part of the liberalization of culture that has taken place within mainland China since 1978. It also explores works produced by artists of non-Chinese ethnicity who live and work within Chinese contexts or whose work has a strong relationship to Chinese culture, society and history.
