Post-Mao Dreaming: Chinese Contemporary Art presents over thirty prints, drawings, photographs and paintings that offer a glimpse of the post-Cultural Revolution era in China following Mao Zedong’s death, when Chinese artists began to throw off the restrictions of Maoist Communism (1949-1979) and to reclaim their individuality.
