There are artists working with different media and in many styles. There is no specific theme.
"This exhibition, 28 Chinese, embraces the power of the individual voice without attempting to force a theme." says Mera Rubell.
Among the well-known artists in the exhibit are Zhang Huan and Ai Weiwei. In a sense they were the impetus for further visits by the Rubells to China.
"From the time that we went to China in 2001 with the artist Zhang Huan, it was a place that intrigued us. Then, we collected Ai Weiwei. Three years ago we decided to revisit it and check out a new generation of artists that were emerging." says Rubell.
