“My Generation” is a breakthrough exhibit comprised entirely of young Chinese artists and curated by Barbara Pollack. These post-Mao Zedong generation artists have grown up in the era of the One-child policy as well as the massive industrialization and globalization that China has experienced in the past 20 years. Their unique culture inspired incredible artwork, which portrays the feelings of alienation, self-definition, cynicism and rebellion that were their constant companions throughout their young lives. The museum will display this exhibit until September 28, 2014.

Beckman received national recognition for his creations in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Art lovers can enjoy this exhibit until September 6, 2014.
