Mandarin Lecture: Steven Dragonn
The Emergence of Chinese Contemporary Art on the International Art Scene
Monday, May 25 | 1:30 PM
In this talk, presented in Mandarin, independent curator Steven Dragonn explores how modern Chinese art lost its global connections during the end of the Qing dynasty, which continued into the late 1970s. With the liberalization and opening up of the economy in the 1980s, how did art in China develop outside of the established traditional Chinese art system? Contemporary artists in China grappled with this question for decades. Following on 30 years after the ’85 New Wave art movement, we look back at the rise of Chinese contemporary art and the recent history of globalization in the Chinese art ecology.
This event is part of Virtual explorASIAN 2020.
The talk will be moderated by Diana Freundl, Interim Chief Curator / Associate Director, and Lynn Chen, Institute of Asian Art Programming Assistant.
