Catalogue Note

“Often times, Western perceptions of contemporary Chinese art are informed by Western perspectives that regard the Cultural Revolution as inhumane and barbaric, and socialist China as autocratic and ruthless.  However, there are still artists like Zhu Wei who follow their own feelings and extract artistic inspiration from their experiences of living through socialist China. Both representations of this era are true, but the latter is more individual and vivid; it is the depiction of life experience that can consistently relate to the people of that generation.”
