With or without the Beijing Olympics, all eyes in the post-American century are destined to turn to China. KIANG GALLERY, with its wide and deep commitment to art by Chinese artists, is bound to be where it's at in the next decade. While some of the names on the Kiang roster are likely to be unknown locally, many are beginning to register seismically on the international scene. We're paying special attention to Danwen Xing, Sze Tsung Leong and relative newcomer Fang Er. Kiang's smart installations and remarkable curatorial eye are just what the Dirty South needs to take a virtual trip to the Dirty East. So long, New York! Cheerio, London! Next stop for the art world: Beijing.
