Provocative Chinese Art in Missouri
The two Chinese artists known as the Gao Brothers have often run afoul of the censors. It seems the authorities just don’t appreciate the brothers’ irreverent portrayals of major figures and events in Chinese history. But a new exhibition of the Gao Brothers’ art should have no problem with the censors. That’s because it’s at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s the Gao Brothers’ first solo museum show in the US.
