Panel Discussion: Exhibition as Site—Extended Case Study (China 1993)

Volume 13, Number 3, May/June 2014
by Anthony Yung, Julia F. Andrews, Andreas Schmid, Chang Tsong-zung, Francesca Dal Lago, Kong Chang’an, Wang Youshen


Article Description

This panel discussion examines exhibitions of contemporary Chinese art that took place in 1993, a year that was symbolic in that many Chinese artists were introduced into the international arena. This extensive discussion reveals just how much has changed in the process of organizing exhibitions, the anxieties of working with unknown artistic expectations, and how recently the dissemination of contemporary Chinese art actually began. In 1993, limited knowledge existed even in Hong Kong about the artwork produced in mainland China. The conference speakers—Julia F. Andrews, Chang Tsong-zung, Francesca Dal Lago, Kong Chang’an, Andreas Schmid, Wang Youshen, and Anthony Yung—mix well-researched inquiries with first-hand personal accounts from individuals directly involved in putting these exhibitions together.
