Younger Chinese Artists Struggle To Excite Buyers In Market Some View As Overpriced

From International Herald Tribune:

As the senior global specialist and vice president for Chinese contemporary art at Sotheby’s in New York, Zhang Xiaoming travels to China almost every month. There she usually meets collectors and dealers. When her schedule allows, she also takes the time to check out ’ studios and their latest productions.

But Zhang admits to finding it increasingly difficult on recent visits to be “touched” by the new works that she has seen.

“Maybe there are great works that have not been discovered, but from what I see, many artists are repeating themselves and the market for younger artists’ works is overpriced,” she said by telephone from Taiwan last week.
