Chi­na: New Ex­hi­bi­tion Mo­dels?

Art Press - - ART+SHOPPING -

Art and the art sys­tem have been co­di­fied for a long time in the West. In Chi­na these re­fe­rence sys­tems are on­ly now being construc­ted lit­tle by lit­tle af­ter the po­li­ti­cal and so­cial uphea­vals of the twentieth cen­tu­ry. All sorts of ini­tia­tives are sha­ping up in this re­gard. Ma­ny are sim­ply hol­low shells, but others help us re­think our own re­la­tion­ship to art and conceive new ways of ex­hi­bi­ting. Take the K11 Art Foun­da­tion. This art cen­ter was ope­ned in Shan­ghai in 2011 in a shop­ping mall and concen­trates on part­ner­ships with the West, as exem­pli­fied by its cur­rent group show of con­tem­po­ra­ry Chi­nese ar­tists,

being put on (through 2015) by the Pa­lais de To­kyo in Pa­ris.
