Another Long March - Chinese Conceptual and Installation Art in the Nineties


ANOTHER LONG MARCH - Chinese Conceptual and Installation Art in the Nineties

Another Long March - Chinese Conceptual Art 1997 was an exhibition of contemporary Chinese art held in Breda, Netherlands in 1997. It was the first big survey of conceptual art and installation art from China in the West, presenting eighteen artists from leading Chinese art centres: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou. The exhibition included video art, photography, installation art and performance art. The works dealt with various themes, including the transformation of the Chinese society in the 1990s, feminism, voyeurism and nudity in art.

The exhibition was curated by Chris Driessen and Marianne Brouwer (chief curator sculpture Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo) and took place at the Chassé Kazerne in Breda, Netherlands. In curating the exhibition, Driessen and Brouwer intended to broaden the understanding of Chinese contemporary art beyond the painting styles Cynical Realism and Political Pop, which had gained international popularity in the 1990s.
