The Museum of Modern Art and Asia Art Archive (AAA) have co-launched two documentary projects, an anthology and a website, that seek to ameliorate this situation. MoMA’s publication Contemporary Chinese Art: Primary Documents, and AAA’s website Materials of the Future: Documenting Contemporary Chinese Art, 1980–1990, are essential to a deeper understanding of the history of contemporary Chinese art.
To celebrate the launch of these two projects, MoMA and AAA are bringing together a number of the leading artists and critics in the field of contemporary Chinese art for an evening of discussions. Speakers include artist Hang Rui; Jane DeBevoise, Chair of Board of Directors of AAA; artist Lin Tianmiao; Sarah Suzuki, Assistant Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books at MoMA; and Wu Hung, Director of the Center for the Art of East Asia and Consulting Curator at the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago), among others.
