From the New York Times (link):
Taking place today is Sotheby’s first-ever auction of contemporary Asian art. Its preview exhibitions amounted to the largest local survey of vanguard Chinese material since the “Inside Out: New Chinese Art” shows at the Asia Society and P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in 1998.
Two concurrent, longer-running shows in the city focus on types of work that Sotheby’s slighted or ignored: the Max Protetch Gallery in Chelsea has a small, old-and-new selection of performance-based photography. More important, at P.S. 1 again, in Long Island City, there is a snappy roundup of recent video, a favored medium among young artists in a digitally savvy 21st-century China.
