New Chinese narratives

Exhibition offers glimpse into China's contemporary art scene

by Chrissi Angeles

In its fifth exhibition to date, titled "Form Through Narrative: New Chinese Art," Pace Gallery in Palo Alto features the work of six modern Chinese artists. Each artist was educated in traditional modes of picture-making but gradually transformed their artistic practices to reflect more contemporary styles.
