Xu Bing’s Masterpieces at the Frost Museum
Anthony Japour offers a perspective on Chinese Contemporary Art

Some years ago during Art Basel Miami Beach, I hosted a Symposium on the Chinese Contemporary Art Movement at the Center for Visual Communication sponsored, in part, by Art & Antiques Magazine. In attendance were art collectors, art dealers, curators, and as well as experts and specialists from Christies, Sotheby's and Bonhams. Auction houses. It was a lively series of talks and I provocatively posed a question to the experts: Which Chinese Contemporary artist's works would still be talked about in the 22nd Century?

While the more familiar names we often see in the headlines with auction records such as Zeng Fanzhi, Yue Minjun, and Zhang Xiaogang were mentioned (notably, no one mentioned Ai Wei Wei... of course that was before he got into trouble with the Chinese law). I said: the artist "Xu Bing" who is on view now at the Frost Museum...
