I believe the engagement we now have with CCA is with art from a very worldly and affluent society, in some ways more open than those we describe as democratic. It does not reflect the struggle and underground nature of previous decades. It will be interesting to view the +M gallery when it begins showing retrospect collections of now established Chinese artist and how the conversation of those artist with Western audiences has changed. This engagement will give us a truer more rounded understanding.
