Made in China: Contemporary Chinese Art at the Israel Museum
The Israel Museum

With close to one hundred works by sixty artists from New York's Estella Collection – one of the most important collections of contemporary Chinese art in the world – this new exhibition at the Israel Museum picks up where a 2001 exhibition left off. That earlier show had focused on 5,000 years of Chinese art in varied media (bronze, porcelain, etc.). The new show confirms the museum's interest in Chinese art and presents the new guard of creation in China, from both renowned and lesser-known artists. The 57 artists whose works are on display were all born around the time of China's Cultural Revolution (1966 to 1976), which can be seen as an influence on their creation. Also varied in media – on show are paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations, videos and drawings – the exhibition pinpoints the different strains running through today's art in China, from classical landscapes to contemporary abstractions. A fascinating panorama of China's thriving artistic climate today.
