Cao Fei and Yang Fudong both address the emergence of a new middle class in China. Contemporary artists in China are employing a range of media to explore the experience of living in a rapidly changing urban environment. Globalization has brought them into contact with Western contemporary art, but their concerns remain specific to present-day China.

Business As Usual originated at the ASU Art Museum, January 31 – May 4, 2008.

Business As Usual is organized for the Henry by Associate Curator Sara Krajewski.
Business As Usual / New Video from China / Cao Fei and Yang Fudong is organized by the Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe, Arizona, and curated by Marilyn A. Zeitlin and Heather S. Lineberry. All works in the exhibition are courtesy of Eloisa and Chris Haudenschild, San Diego. This exhibition is coordinated for the Henry by Associate Curator Sara Krajewski with support from ArtsFund and the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs.
