In New Mao Chinese sculptor Guangci gives his country's former Communist leader the sort of egalitarian, iconographic treatment that Mao himself might've actually appreciated. Guangci's work is up with that of fellow Chinese sculptor Xiang Jing at Chelsea's ChinaSquare, through October 6. —Rachel Wolff
