More than ten thousand public artworks have been created in the People's Republic of China since its establishment in 1949. They range from the ubiquitous Chairman Mao statues, to immense monuments and murals commemorating revolutionary uprisings, to abstract pieces inspired by international artistic trends. Eighty-three of the most intriguing of these works are featured here by American sculptor John Young, who traveled to dozens of Chinese cities, photographing public artworks and interviewing artists and arts administrators. Comments from these interviews, along with information about subjects and settings are woven into the text accompanying the color photographs. Most of the artworks portrayed in John Young's superb photographs have never before appeared in a Western publication. Contemporary Public Art in China is a valuable resource for anyone interested in recent Chinese art or public art, as well as a fascinating guide for visitors to China. This book is still wrapped in publishers plastic. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
