Alternative Agency in Representation by Contemporary Chinese Women Artists

  •  Phyllis Hwee Leng Teo    


There have been only sporadic attempts to understand Chinese women’s role and influence in the field of visual arts, even though their contribution has been major. This article highlights the significance of women’s participation in modern Chinese culture through the works of several contemporary Chinese women artists who have been professionally active in visual arts in the last two decades. Using an interdisciplinary framework, drawing on concepts from theories of feminism, modernism and postcolonialism, this article seeks to understand a culturally specific field in the history of art, and the relationship of various factors that have contributed to it.
