The following editorial sets out the context for this special edition of the Journal of Visual Art Practice by situating contemporary Chinese art and its critical engagement with society and politics – both within and outside the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan – in relation to a wider history of modernist, postmodernist and contemporary visual art theory and practice. It also outlines the particular social, economic, cultural and political conditions in relation to which contemporary art is produced and received within the PRC and Taiwan as well as differences between localized Chinese and international perspectives on the critical significance of contemporary Chinese art.
