Fire Within: A New Generation of Chinese Women Artists focuses a critical lens on the artistic production of a group of highly talented, emerging women artists from China. Collectively, the artists in this exhibition investigate a wide-range of themes and issues, including the status of women in China; cultural and gender identity; interpersonal relationships; and more broad sociopolitical dynamics, both in China and beyond. Importantly, their probing investigations stir discussion and draw attention to their diverse and varied experiences.

The generation of individuals born in China during the 1970s and after witnessed significant changes—including ideological, cultural, social, and in the domestic sphere—as a result of China's opening up to foreign markets and international exchange. These shifts have in turn motivated artists to experiment within their own artistic practices in order to better understand the struggles and conflicts they encounter both privately and publicly. Following this line of inquiry, Fire Within brings together fresh perspectives and approaches to traditional mediums with the intent to reveal the new forms of consciousness that have emerged in recent years. Taken together, the works on display transcend gender and cultural differences, instead tapping into a more universal sense of human nature.

In accompaniment to the exhibition Fire Within: A New Generation of Chinese Women Artists, the Broad Museum will host a conversation featuring curator Dr. Wang Chunchen and select artists from the exhibition. Dr. Jennifer Dorothy Lee, Assistant Professor of East Asian Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will moderate. Exploring the shifting sense of identity and agency around the role of women in Chinese society, the discussion will unpack the exhibition's driving impetus and major themes. Punctuated by insights from the artists—who will discuss their work and personal experiences as women artists—audience members will be offered the opportunity to delve deeper into these important issues and engage in fruitful intercultural exchange.
