Chinese Art has caught the world's attention. Once considered obscure and exotic, it now commands millions at international auction. China's contemporary artists are the rock stars of the art world, living a lifestyle more synonymous with New York than the Peoples Republic of China. 'China Power' is a reflection of modern China by its artists, filmmakers, and curators.
