Studies on Contemporary China This series is edited at the Contemporary China Institute at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, which is currently Britain's leading centre for Chinese studies. They hope to make the series one of the foremost collections of work on twentieth-century China in the world. Thebooks, by scholars worldwide, are selected for the series by an editorial board. They embrace a wide variety of topics, including economic development, politics and ideology, literature and art, and diplomatic international relations. This book is a pioneering study of the origins of the Chinese Communist Party's cultural policy and the development of the Chinese model of cultural modernization. It traces the development of Marxist literary theory in China and its application to the problems of propagandizing a mass audience ofilliterate peasants. The author looks in particular at the transformation of the folk dance and folk play in the Party's base areas during the 1940s. During this period, the CCP launched a series of mass campaigns in the arts designed to bring the benefits of the new culture to the peasantry, and to weld society in the base areas of North China into a cohesive political force. A key feature of these artistic movements was the way in which theParty sought to transform the traditional performing arts. While only partly successful artistically, these developments contributed to the Communists' propaganda victory in the Civil War and paved the way for their nationwide drive for cultural popularization after 1949. This is the first book-length study to investigate these crucial developments in depth. The author marshals an impressive array of contemporary sources and later reminiscences to investigate the link between policy formation and artistic practice.

"Sullivan presents a wealth of material that has never before appeared in a Western language. I expect it will be the standard book on twentieth-century Chinese art for the foreseeable future."--Julia F. Andrews, author of "Painters and Politics in the People's Republic of China" "A most sympathetic and useful guide to twentieth-century Chinese art. Long the leading scholar on the subject, Professor Sullivan has presented a lucid account of a most dramatic chapter in Chinese art in a complex interplay of aesthetics, politics, cultural, and social history."--Wen C. Fong, Princeton University "So much of China's art in the twentieth century has to do with artistic (and political) ideas from the West that is is appropriate that one of its first comprehensive histories should be written by a Western scholar--especially one who has known personally many of China's leading artistic figures of the last fifty years. Not only does Professor Sullivan tell the complex story of twentieth century China art with lucidity and style, his learned text is also illuminated with witty anecdotes and incisive observations that can only come from an indsider."--Johnson Chang (Chang Tson-zung), Director, Hanart Tz Gallery, Hong Kong

China has emerged as the next frontier for contemporary art. Chinese artists, such as Zhang Xiaogang, Yue Minjun, Wang Guangyi, and Shen Shaomin, are producing some of today’s most provocative new work. With China set to host the world at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2010 Shanghai World’s Fair, enthusiasm for recent Chinese art continues to grow. This volume fills an important gap and provides badly needed context for the collector or connoisseur. Charles Saatchi, one of the savviest figures in the contemporary art scene, has built an unparalleled collection of new Chinese art which is presented here in glorious color reproduction on the eve of the opening of the new Saatchi Gallery in London’s Chelsea. Not only is this the seminal book on the subject, it is the first book to bring contemporary Chinese art into focus.

During Chairman Mao's Great Cultural Revolution, posters and pamphlets served two purposes: satisfying the political agenda and supplying artists with an avenue to work. This catalog documents a brilliant exhibition, co-curated by the Power Plant and the Belkin Art Gallery, on Chinese Communist propaganda as art, creating an almost nostalgic record of these powerful, iconic images. With English translations of each reproduction. Essays by co-curators Scott Watson and Shengtian Zheng.
