The China Experience
12pm, Thursday 16 October 2008
Yinghua Lu (Writer, Curator and Contributing Editor, frieze) will bring together three key players in Chinese contemporary art to discuss the impact of the country’s political, financial and creative conditions on its artists, critics, curators and gallerists. With so much attention focused on China, the panel examines the structures of its art scene and looks at how it compares to Western models.
Chair: Carol Yinghua Lu (Writer, Curator and Contributing Editor, frieze), Weng Ling (curator and founder of the Beijing Center for the Arts), Zheng Shengtian (Yishu, Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art), Karen Smith (Writer, Curator and Chinese Contemporary Art Specialist).
3pm, Saturday 18 October 2008
Raqs Media Collective will perform a selection of reports and conversations gathered from their nomadic practices as artists, curators and theorists.
Raqs Media Collective is a group of three media practitioners – Jeebesh Bagchi (New Delhi, 1965), Monica Narula (New Delhi, 1969) and Shuddhabrata Sengupta (New Delhi, 1968) – based in New Delhi. Raqs is best known for its contribution to contemporary art, and has presented work at most of the major international shows, from Documenta to the Venice Biennale; but the collective is active in an unusually wide range of domains, and it is perhaps this breadth of inspiration that gives their work its originality.
