Politics and Theology in Chinese Contemporary Art

Reflections on the Work of Wang Guangyi

By Huang Zhuan. Text by Demetrio Paparoni, Marko Daniel.

Wang Guangyi’s art is significant not only in China but across the world: this book investigates his artistic path from a new perspective. For any reader interested in understanding contemporary Chinese culture and art, this book provides a unique viewpoint: it approaches the story of a Chinese contemporary artist from the perspective of the history of ideas and art rather than that of news and politics. It adopts methods and approaches easily understandable by Western readers in order to draw them closer to the enigma that Chinese contemporary culture represents.


Huang Zhuan (Wuhan, 1958) is currently a professor at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts where he also serves as executive director of the OCT Contemporary Art Terminal. Since the early 1980s his essays, which have recently been collected in the book Ideas and Action in the Art World (Beijing University Press, 2010), have had a strong impact on the Chinese artistic scene.
