Tea & Talk - The Battle for Art: Modeling the National Exhibition in Republican-era China, 1910-1937 (International Program)

Spencer Museum of Art, Reception Room
Efforts to strengthen and promote the idea of a contemporary Chinese art world in the first half of the 20th century were manifest prominently in the organization of large-scale national art exhibition. However, the question remained: whose art world was it? This paper examines the development of the national exhibition model through four key art events. These exhibitions demonstrate the competitive atmosphere that emerged between official government-sponsored exhibitions and alternate unofficial artist-lead exhibitions.
