September 21, 2008; 3:00 p.m.
China’s Emerging Art
This three-way conversation features internationally noted curator and critic Hou Hanru, director of exhibitions and public programs at the San Francisco Art Institute; art historian Jane DeBevoise, chair of the Board of Trustees of Asia Art Archives, a Hong Kong–based nonprofit organization dedicated to documenting the recent history of visual art from China; and leading Chinese multimedia artist Ou Ning. Among the topics of discussion will be new media and transdisciplinary collaboration; the social role of the artist at a time of market dominance; and creating “memory” through documentation.
