World 3: Art History and Art Institutions

  • Lecturer:
    Guo Weiqi


Art institutions are universities without walls, bridging different research interests and methodologies, and building a platform for scholars and artists to exchange ideas. Publishing is a comprehensive artistic endeavor that forms an organic whole with other components. Art history is both a history and an art, and its collaboration with institutions is not just a generational task, but an optimistic attitude and aspiration. World 3 is colorful, and I am grateful to all colleagues who have worked diligently towards this ideal.
