Artist talk - Dave Tacon
Today, Shanghai is one of the most exciting and stylish cities on the planet, as well as one rife with contrasts and contradictions. Young people, whose grandparents starved in the famines of Mao's Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution, flaunt their new-found wealth under the gaudy lights of nightclubs. Many believe this wealth and love of excess apparent in Chinese society is the birth of the Chinese Dream.
