Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art out now

December 2007 issue of Yishu:
Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art out now

New with supplement,


This special issue is guest edited by independent scholar and curator Dr. Britta Erickson and was launched at Art Basel Miami Beach, December 6 to 9, 2007. The eleven essays and interviews that address the burgeoning market and its ramifications represent a range of perspectives, including those of artists, galleries, collectors, curators, and auction houses.

Included among them is a profile of the Chris and Eloisa Haudenschild collection of Chinese video art and photography by Michelle M. McCoy. Initiated in the late 1990s, the collection, based in La Jolla, California, is among the most important ensembles of contemporary Chinese art and one of the few to focus on new media. The exhibition, Zooming Into Focus: Contemporary Photography and Video Art from the Haudenschild Collection, travelled to venues in Beijing, Tijuana, San Diego, Singapore, and Shanghai from 2003 to 2005.

Writers contributing to this issue include Mathieu Borysevicz, Simon Castets, Chan Ho Yeung David, Britta Erickson, Joe Martin Hill, Martina Köppel-Yang, Paul Manfredi, Brandi Reddick, Ling-Yun Tang, Yang Jiechang, Pauline J. Yao, Yü Christina Yü, and Zhao Li.

Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art is the only English language journal devoted to issues addressing contemporary visual art in China and the diaspora. Yishu is produced in Vancouver, Canada and published by Art & Colletion Group Ltd, Taipei. It is distributed internationally and has gained the reputation as one of the most important resources of knowledge about contemporary Chinese art. Now approaching its seventh year, and traditionally a quarterly, as of January 2008, Yishu will be published bi-monthly.
