This ambitious exhibition unpacks two decades of Chinese contemporary art, assembling a body of experimental work that chronicles the country’s reemergence on the global stage. The show presents 150 installations, performances, photographs, and paintings by artists such as Ai Weiwei and Zhou Tiehai, who have greeted China’s social transformation with various measures of skepticism and optimism.
