15 Years Chinese Contemporary Art Award

15 May 2014
Opening Talk


Date and Time: 15 May 2014 (Thursday), 5:00pm
Venue: Connecting Space Hong Kong (Directions)

As part of the celebratory events of the grand opening of Connecting Space Hong Kong, we are proud to have invited Dr Uli Sigg, Anna Liu, Lee Kit and Dr Pi Li to join in conversation with Michael Schindhelm. The aim of the conversation is to discuss the evolution of Chinese art talents reflected in the history of the Chinese Contemporary Art Award since 1998 and the current trends in Chinese contemporary art.

M+’s strategy towards those trends and how to position the museum within the context of a diversification of the art scene within the context of both content and market. 
The discussion will focus on the role of global markets represented by HK ART for Chinese art. The perspectives of artists in Hong Kong and Pearl River Delta will be reflected in a changing eco system for the arts.
