About this Event

On the 40th anniversary of the emergence of a group of radical artists known as the “Stars,” two of its members, Huang Rui and Zhang Hongtu, will discuss art in China in the years after the Cultural Revolution and the changes they see today. The Stars made headlines in 1979 when—in defiance of being excluded from a National Art Museum exhibition marking the 30th anniversary of the PRC—the avant-garde artists mounted their work in a nearby park. The art was seized, but the incident marked a milestone in China’s burgeoning contemporary art movement, which would take the international art world by storm. Huang and Zhang, whose works are collected by major museums around the world, share the challenges and responsibilities of being an artist in the China of yesterday and today.
