Since the end of the 1980s, contemporary art produced by artists of Chinese cultural identity has been exhibited internationally in accordance with Westernised curatorial discourses and practices associated with the White Cube and its postmodernist/contemporary variants. This symposium will intervene critically with those discourses and practices by exploring the possibility of alternative approaches to the curation of a culturally Chinese contemporary art.

The symposium will bring together scholars as well as critics, artists, curators, and architects/designers who will be invited to respond critically to the symposium’s theme with reference to their particular professional experiences and concerns. In addition to presentations by the symposium’s convenors and invited speakers, ample time will be given for collective discussion and responses to audience questions. The convenors will seek to publish a peer-reviewed edited collection related to the theme of the symposium.

Join us for a one-day online international symposium/scholarly gathering jointly organized by the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA and the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is essential.
