Included On the Edge: Chinese Artists Encounter the West features bold, experimental works by 11 of China's leading avant-garde artists. On the Edge explores the artists' position in the global art world, which is focused on the West, as well as China's political situation in regard to the West. Works by Huang Yong Ping, Qiu Zhijie, Yan Lei, Xu Bing, Zhang Huan and other leading artists range from humorous commentary on the artists' bumpy road to stardom, to political pieces, to thoughtful invitations to explore a common ground between East and West. The exhibition features more than 20 works in a variety of media including paintings, prints, photographs, videos, mixed-media installations, sculptures and interactive CD-ROM.
On the Edge was organized by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. The exhibition and catalogue are made possible in large part through the generosity of Karen Christensen and an anonymous donor.
