This could be interesting despite the generic English translation below. For me, the inclusion of mass media could be what sets this apart from the millions of contemporary art exhibitions that have occurred of the last few years. -RST
"China Contemporary Architecture, Art and Visual Culture is a collaboration between the Netherlands Architecture Institute, MuseumBoijmans Van Beuningen and the Nederlands fotomuseum. This first interdisciplinary overview of China's contemporary art, architecture and visual culture - including television, photography, newspapers, magazines and blogs - also provides a platform for a new critical voice from the People's Republic. China is undergoing a phenomenal transformation. In just a few years the country has developed into the mecca of the market economy, a place where existing and new cities are mushrooming into modern metropolises at breakneck speed.
But is this all just a glossy image? Three Rotterdam arts institutions have teamed up to show the work of contemporary artists, photographers, architects and designers from China to have them answer this question with provocative, critical, ironic and beautiful work."
