Further Biographical Context for Liang Zhuoshu

Liang Zhuoshu was born in 1953 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often defined as a response to the central stresses of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a key movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the extensive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly renowned figures worldwide. A number of the artists who gained fame and successful in the 1960s remained dominant figures. For example, Andy Warhol branched out into film and magazine publishing, the first type of cross cultural activity for a visual artist. This secured his reputation as a globally renowned celebrity in his own right. International movements began to gain prominence included feminism, which translated strongly into the visual culture, and photorealism which had begun in the 1960s and enjoyed momentous commercial and critical achievements. For the first time painters and sculptors from Latin America were embraced by the leading critical and institutional levers in New York.
