Excerpt–

...at least five New York galleries have begun to represent artists from China: Deitch features, among others, installation artists Chen Zhen (a current finalist for the 1997 Hugo Boss prize); last summer, Jack Tilton showed the work of multimedia artist Huang Yong Ping at his SoHo gallery; Holly Solomon presented Feng Mengbo's digital art projects in February; Max Protetch is staging a group show of photographers, painters and video artists in his Chelsea gallery this month (and he mounted a group show in January); and Yvonne Force, international curatorial consultant, is coordinating "4695/1998," an exhibition of seven young Chinese artists who use traditional materials in contemporary ways, for SoHo's Lehmann Maupin Gallery this month. In addition, former Hong Kong contemporary art dealer Angela Ho specializes in young painters from China in her year-and-a-half-old Upper East Side Gallery, while the five-year-old Art Projects International gallery, run by Korean-born curator and critic Jung Lee Sanders, regularly shows art from China and Chinese-born artists living in New York.
