Visitors to Oklahoma City have the opportunity to experience “My Generation: Young Chinese Artists,” the first U.S. exhibition to focus solely on the post-Mao generation of Chinese artists. “My Generation” offers a surprising look at how China’s mega-development has impacted its youth culture and spawned new art trends.

Museum visitors will discover an exciting global artistic conversation in a breathtaking variety of media including painting, photography, video, and installation. Young Chinese artists are breaking out in ways that challenge and defy the styles of an older generation of Chinese artists already known in the West. Despite language barriers and cultural differences, these artists work in a truly global vocabulary which will be readily understood by American audiences.

“My Generation: Young Chinese Artists” is an extended look at a new generation of artists emerging in mainland China since 2000–the year China opened its doors to international artists and that Chinese artists began to command attention on the world’s stage. The exhibition examines contemporary China through the lens of five themes: gender roles and intimate relationships, family ties, the urbanized landscape, religion and reflections on Buddhism, and politics and gestures of rebellion.

All 26 artists in this exhibition were born after 1976–the end of the Cultural Revolution–and most are the products of China’s one-child policy. Growing up in a country with a high-powered market economy, they have been exposed to global art movements through the internet and from being educated in China’s art academies. They are ambitious, determined and technically sophisticated with much to say about their homeland–positive and negative–and they deftly navigate around the restrictions of censorship and cultural differences.

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art presents exhibitions drawn from throughout the world. The Museum's collection covers a period of five centuries with highlights in European and American art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a growing collection of contemporary art, and a comprehensive collection of glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. The Museum boasts the region's premiere repertory cinema, which screens the finest international, independent, and classic films.

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City’s Arts District, at 415 Couch Drive. Visit the Museum online at okcmoa.com or call 405-236-3100 for admission pricing and hours of operation.
