New Photography, presented by Chinese Artist Network, features a wide variety of photographic works by young Chinese artists. CAN, a Fremont-based nonprofit organization, is committed to promoting the work of emerging Chinese artists through providing both exhibition opportunities and a strong Internet presence on their web site. The works in this exhibition represent a recent movement by young Chinese artists away from traditional photographic constraints toward more conceptual and experimental styles of photography. Although China has a voracious consumer culture, there are still very few galleries that exhibit cutting edge photography, so most of the represented artists are establishing their careers through exhibitions in Europe and the US.
