Artshare.com presents a selection of 18 rare photography works from a pioneering private collection of contemporary Chinese art. Featuring eight important artists born between 1957 and 1971. Ranging from the early 1990s to mid 2000s, the works presented allow us to discover, with a unique perspective, the development of Chinese photography during the formative years of avant-garde art and the societal changes in China.
Photography, a medium often under-looked in China, is gaining again strong interest and momentum, especially for such historical works. Other editions and similar photographs of the works exhibited with Artshare.com are part of the renowned Guy and Myriam Ullens Collection of Chinese contemporary art, and went under the hammer at the Sotheby’s Hong Kong Contemporary Asian Art Sale in April and October 2014, for record prices.
