China and Revolution: History, Parody and Memory in Contemporary Art

The exhibition can be divided into four sections: the revolutionary Chinese posters (with special thanks to Shen Jiawei who contributed his works), the portraits of Xu Weixin, the parodic paintings of Liu Dahong, and the new propaganda posters of Li Gongming.

Each artist talks about the Cultural Revolution through their recent works. Thus the original posters from the time of the Cultural Revolution allow us to compare and contrast the different responses to them in contemporary art in China.
