Reflections on the Ecology of Chinese Contemporary Art: Faith-Based Economy and Art Museums

  • Lecturer:
    Jiang Jun


Amid discussions about domestic circulation, we also hope to re-examine the ecology of Chinese contemporary art over the past 40 years, as well as the fragmented artistic beliefs and art market today. Only when the people are unified and participate in constructing and pricing Chinese contemporary culture alongside the nation, enabling a unified narrative for the story of contemporary art, can collections from national art museums, private art museums, individual collectors, and corporate foundations achieve networking and converge towards a consensus-based and diverse value system. Then, a unified domestic art market can be formed, allowing us to discuss the next step of fostering confidence in and exporting national culture.
