Chinese contemporary art has attracted much international attention and critical acclaim during the past decades. Well known artists such as Ai Wei Wei and Cai Cuo Quiang have become global art stars, but what is the situation like now for emerging and younger artists in China? With an extensive background in curating exhibitions in a museum context as well as developing innovative audience learning programs, Veronica Wong will introduce us to how the art scene in China today has developed, its complex structures and markets, and highlight many younger artists working across different media. What kinds of issues are younger artists in China today thinking about? What is the situation with art museums and galleries now? How has the influence of globalization in China affected artists? We will approach these and other topics with Veronica, using slides and group discussion.
