Museum 2050 seeks to be a resource for those interested in learning about and contributing to the cultural landscape in Greater China. Check back soon for more information about how we’re growing the community.

In the meantime, please consider purchasing our book, Looking to New Institutional Models: China’s Cultural Landscape by Mid-Century, the outcome of our inaugural symposium of the same name that took place June 9-10, 2018 and sought to critically examine the diverse museum practices in both official and private domains of the Greater China Region.

The fourteen papers presented at the Long Museum, Shanghai have been compiled into the platform’s first publication, investigating how institutional frameworks are fostered by the unique social and cultural dynamics at play in China and how this might impact the global art system. From questions of audience development to examinations of international influence, Looking to New Institutional Models: China’s Cultural Landscape by Mid-Century addresses the unique and unexplored potential at stake in China’s developing institutional landscape. If you are based in mainland China, copies can be purchased here. If you are outside of mainland China or interested in a digital copy, please feel free to get in touch.

Our second publication, combining the papers from our second and third symposiums will be published in Spring 2021. Join our mailing list for more information. Additionally, you can find a list of recommended reading from Museum 2050 community members here.
