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 that 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. Please contact us if you are interested in a copy.
