BACKGROUND

This event provides up-to-date knowledge about salient themes in contemporary Chinese art, including the making of institutions and the autonomy of art. Historically, in Western Europe and North America in the early Twentieth Century, the autonomy of art has coincided with the institutional efforts of art criticism and art history. Unlike the west, China does not have a long tradition of publicly- and privately-funded institutions to enclose art. This event reflects on an unresolved tension between art and the institutional enclosure of it. This project brings together students, researchers, practitioners in responding to the need of redefining the contemporary Chinese art scene.
