30 Years of Sculpture
Start from the Horizon, an exhibition reviewing modern Chinese sculpture since 1978 when China began its policy of Reform and Opening-up, was launched in early November 2011 at Beijing’s Si Shang Art Museum. Lasting four months, the exhibition includes more than 100 works from 54 established and up-and-coming artists. Strikingly different from the realist style ubiquitous before 1978, sculptures in the exhibition show a strong tendency toward diversity, with many pieces showing abstract, satirical, revolutionary and countercultural themes. Also, with the influence of “art integration,” many sculptors represented in the show have borrowed forms and ideas from other arts, creating stranger and more challenging works.
