Over the last decades, in the global context, China has moved from the periphery to the centre, so much that the country is marked by an optimism similar to that which energised the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. In this radically changing environment, undoubtedly more than elsewhere, contemporary Chinese artists have developed and are continuing to develop their practice in direct response to the context in which they live. Right from the start, the China Power Station project’s aim has been to highlight the most innovative responses produced by a particularly rich artistic field of exploration. Therefore, it is not surprising that China Power Station: Part III at Mudam explores the themes linked to urban space, the historic and contemporary situation in China, and to everyday spaces. The exhibition marks, through the example of a country which is currently undergoing accelerated economic change, together with the danger of unrestrained urbanisation and uniformity connected to globalisation, the ways in which current artistic practices respond to the challenges which stimulate the contemporary world.
