Published by Chrysler Museum of Art/Grey Art Gallery/Lyon Artbooks.
Edited by Amy Brandt. Foreword by Erik H. Neil, Lynn Gumpert. Introduction by Lynn Gumpert. Text by Amy Brandt, Joshua Takano Chambers-Letson, Alexandra Chang, Muna Tseng.

This volume is the first comprehensive survey of the work of Tseng Kwong Chi (1950-1990), a revered photographer and performance artist of the 1980s. Reproducing more than 100 works by Tseng from the late 1970s to the late 1980s, and including archival materials from his commissions for the Soho Weekly News, the book presents Tseng's best-known self-portrait series, East Meets West-for which the Hong Kong-born artist donned a "Mao suit" and posed in front of iconic tourist destinations, dramatizing issues of cultural politics and identity-as well as lesser known works. Tseng was also a key documentarian of New York's 1980s downtown scene, shooting portraits of his friends Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ann Magnuson and Kenny Scharf, among others.

Tseng Kwong Chi: Self Portraits 1979-1989Tseng Kwong Chi: Self Portraits 1979-1989

Published by Paul Kasmin Gallery.
Text by Dan Cameron, Kenny Scharf, Muna Tseng, Lilly Wei.

This handsome volume features 100 works from Tseng Kwong Chi's pioneering series of large-scale black-and-white self-portraits, produced from 1979 to 1989, many of which have never been published. The son of exiled Chinese nationalists, Kwong Chi was part of a 1980s New York circle that included Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and Cindy Sherman. His ironic portraits of himself posed in a Mao suit--with a visitor badge reading SLUTFORART in front of American tourist destinations--found their way to Communist China through Western magazines smuggled into the country in the 1980s, greatly influencing China's avant-garde. Ann Magnuson, a ubiquitous downtown performer in the 80s, mused, "Just who is this visitor from that forbidden land, who is both tasting the fruits of American freedom and slyly satirizing our home of the brave?"
