The art world has recently witnessed an international phenomenon, literally "red hot" in its pulsating energy, as new artists from Asia have been redefining the parameters of the contemporary scene. Featuring works from an extraordinary private collection in Houston, this book surveys the most innovative art trends coming out of Japan, China, South Korea, and Vietnam. The spotlight focuses on the generation of artists who emerged after the political and economic upheavals of the late 1980s and early 1990s, among them Takashi Murakami, Chen Wenling, and the Luo Brothers.
