Great Walls of China documents Franc Palaia’s 1981 trip to China, during which the artist visited Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Xian in order to study the way in which walls are used to communicate messages. From the long-defunct “Democracy Wall” to movie posters to American-style advertisements, Palaia presents his findings in color photographs with captions in English and Chinese. With an introduction by Richard Haas and foreword by Peter Frank.
