A retrospective survey of the oeuvre of the Zhou brothers from China-the product of an unusual working method: the artists paint all of their works as a team.

The book presents a comprehensive selection of works by the Zhou brothers: Shan Zuo (born in 1952) and Da Huang (born in 1957). Born in the autonomous Chinese region of Guangxi, they studied art in Shanghai and Beijing and became the best-known young painters of their generation in mainland China during the 1980s. In 1985, they were the first artists ever given the opportunity to exhibit their work-large-scale, primitively abstract paintings-on a tour through the five most important art institutions in China, including the National Museum of Art in Beijing and the art museums in Shanghai and Nanjing. Although the brothers have lived and worked in the US since 1986, they have not changed their working approach at all. They develop all of their paintings, prints, and sculptures together, communicating without words in what they refer to as "dream dialogues" and responding to both Eastern and Western influences, themes, and materials.
