DESCRIPTION

Breakthrough presents work by eight exemplary contemporary Chinese women artists: Cai Jin, Cao Fei, Chen Qiulin, Hung Liu, Lin Tianmiao, Peng Wei, Xing Danwen, and Yin Xiuzhen. This exhibition displays more than two dozen works in a variety of media by artists who have shaped the panorama of contemporary art, both within China and internationally. Much of the work in Breakthrough features the human figure, which provides a central metaphor for the interplay between individual and collective responses to shifts of modernity and globalization and the rising self-awareness among women artists.

The exhibition is organized by Sarah Montross, Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art with Bowdoin faculty Shu-chin Tsui, Associate Professor of Asian Studies and Film Studies and Peggy Wang, Assistant Professor of Art History and Asian Studies.
