2018 INAUGURAL SYMPOSIUM
Looking to new institutional models:
China’s cultural landscape by mid century
Long Museum, West Bund
2nd Floor Auditorium, 3398 Longteng Ave, Xuhui District, Shanghai
In this inaugural symposium, we seek to critically examine the diverse museum practices in both official and private domains of the Greater China Region. Speakers will investigate how institutional frameworks are fostered by the unique social and cultural dynamics at play. In doing so, we hope to bring forth discussions to challenge the existing models through which China’s cultural development has been considered. By looking at the intersection of these various threads, we seek to reveal the unique audience experience that is emerging in China, offering a particular focus on the complex cultural and temporal dimensions of museum-going and its relationship to sociality and contemplation.
