Published in conjunction with the 8+8-1 – Selected Paintings by 15 Contemporary Artists travelling exhibition, this book features 15 leading figures of the Chinese Avant-Garde. The exhibition first opened in Hong Kong at the Schoeni Art Gallery in 1997, and was then taken to Chicago, Vancouver, London and Berlin. The 8+8-1 exhibition curated by Schoeni Art Gallery was a group exhibition of small panel oil paintings by China’s leading artists, including Liu Xiao Dong, Yue Min Jun, Yang Shao Bin, Zeng Fan Zhi and Zhang Xiao Gang among other contemporaries. The project is based on a series of small paintings of between thirty to ninety nine pieces, created by each of the 15 artists especially for the exhibition. Curator of the exhibition Manfred Schoeni commented: “Chinese art of today presents us with an extraordinary insight into the changes and advances which are taking place in China itself. This is a time of enormous creativity and economic change in China. It is for this reason that I decided to invite 15 of China’s leading avant-garde artists to try to capture on a series of small panels something of the essence of their work. I hope that this exhibition will bring an understanding of the art and genius of some of China’s leading artists.”Foreword by Manfred Schoeni


About the publisher

Schoeni Art Gallery was established in 1992 with a unique mission to promote and advocate the exposure and recognition of contemporary Chinese art. Through the exhibition of pioneers in Chinese Avant-Garde, Neo-Realism, and Pop Art collectively, we have steadily nurtured an artistic environment in which international interest in the Chinese contemporary artistic scene has grown to unparalleled heights. Apart from organising countless exhibitions both locally and abroad, Schoeni Art Gallery has independently published over 60 publications. One of the primary aims of the gallery is to contribute to arts education and the documenting and archiving of the development of China’s contemporary art. Publications by the Schoeni Art Gallery play a significant role in recording primary source material for the history and evolution of contemporary Chinese Art.
