The talk is taking place in the framework of “RETHINKING CIVILISATION“, a series of conversations and meeting opportunities dedicated to the changes and widening of the boundaries of contemporary art that have today incorporated new areas, especially in Asia, but also beyond.
The meeting focuses on aspects of artistic research in the two most important Asian countries, China and India, and are dedicated to artistic languages and their social implications. Uli Sigg is the leading collector of contemporary Chinese art and co-curator of the inaugural exhibition at the M +, Museum for Visual Arts in Hong Kong, which is scheduled to open its doors in 2019. Sigg’s talk, A brief History of Chinese Contemporary Art and its Recourse to Tradition, explores the theme of the relationship between contemporary Chinese art and tradition.
