    This exhibition showcases twelve contemporary artists of Chinese heritage, who over the last two decades have established their careers in the global metropolis of New York. Presented in three consecutive chapters—Part I: Visual Memories, Part II: Crossing Boundaries, and Part III: Towards Transculturalism—Here & Now examines the shifting relationship between the artist and tradition, the crossing of boundaries in a multicultural environment, and the reinvention of culture. In a swiftly globalizing world, with China quickly emerging as a new superpower, New York’s Chinese artists are asking themselves, “Why still here?” and “Why still now?”
