LEAP 5

This fall issue of LEAP looks at the role of hometown and place in contemporary art production in China, focusing on the four key regions of Dongbei, Sichuan, Fujian, and Guangdong. The four stories in our cover package approach this theme from different perspectives–Guo Juan’s fly-on-the-wall meditation on artist Liu Xiaodong’s return to his tiny hometown of Jincheng in China’s far northeast; Sun Dongdong’s look at kinship ties among Sichuanese painters; Kae Araki’s analysis of why Fujianese aritsts and art-world players seem to excel so effortlessly; and Terry Kern’s glimpse back at the conversation surrounding art from the southern province of Guangdong, arguably the first regional discourse to make itself heard in an otherwise national context. The issue also includes profiles of young artists including Adrian Wong, Zhang Ding, and Zhou Bin, shorter pieces on Liu Dahong, Matt Hope, Cui Xiuwen, Huang Ran, Yu Hong, and Tobias Wong, along with reviews 15 summer and fall shows.
