‘House of Oracles’ Looks Back at Huang Yong Ping’s Legacy – Holland Cotter

From the New York Times (link):

Everything, everything must change, says the Tao. Consider the course of contemporary Chinese . Two decades ago it barely existed, at least as far as we knew. By the 1990’s, it was a crouching tiger on the international scene, powerful but held back. Now the tiger has taken a giant leap upward, in value and visibility, thanks to two wildly successful Sotheby’s auctions in the last few weeks, in New York and Hong Kong.

The results: much talk of money, New China, new stars. Yet one major figure, Huang Yong Ping, among China’s most influential avant-garde artists, was all but absent from the sales. A former star in descent? Hardly, judging by “House of Oracles: A Huang Yong Ping Retrospective,” the dynamite midcareer survey at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art here. But he is a star of elusive luminosity.
