In earlier generations, Chinese women artists had a difficult time gaining attention and getting exhibited in the all boys\' club of the Chinese art scene. But today, a new generation of women artists are emerging in full force. Some are addressing gender issues in fascinating, even feminist, ways. Others reject the whole notion of identity, choosing to venture out in new, experimental directions. Author and leading expert in Chinese contemporary art, Barbara Pollack will introduce the leaders in this generation such as Cao Fei, Lu Yang and Miao Ying, and discuss the work of many more who are contributing to this new dialogue about gender.
