LEAP 2019: History in Progress

The newest issue of LEAP is a special review of this decade. It traces back the years from 2010 to 2018, with a selection of some of the best reviews published in the 47 issues of the magazine since its inception in the beginning of the decade. Not only a testament to the bilingual art magazine’s rich history, it’s a reflection of the contemporary art scene in China in this highly influential and ever-accelerating decade. Having gone through the shifting winds in the contemporary art world and the publishing business in China in the past nine years, LEAP has always been—and still is, relentlessly—at the forefront of serious and engaged art criticism in the Sinosphere and beyond. The printed matter in your hands is the proof of that, as well as a reaffirmation of our commitment. Drawn from the past 47 issues of the magazine, this special anthology of LEAP includes cover stories, and a chronicle of the key exhibitions and their reviews in the Chinese scene from 2010 to 2018. History in Progress: A Chinese Contemporary Scene since 2010 is not only a useful archive for studying and analyzing Chinese contemporary art of this period, it also aims to paint a vivid portrait of this era.
