Art in the cities: John Moores 2010 and China live link

 
Details
 
Creators:Courtenay, Philip
Group or Collective Creators:Centre for Transnational Art, identity and Nation (TrAIN), e-space lab
Description:

E-dialogue using video streaming and video file exchange considering the role of exchange between artists and designers in an international setting with particular focus on the John Moores Trust initiative with partners in China to instigate a Contemporary Painting Prize in China, the first, and, to date, only non-government sponsored art competition in China!

The project was organised by Philip Courtenay of e-space lab and Min Ling of Shanghai University College of Fine Arts.

The agenda was about exploring the continuing vitality of contemporary painting in the UK and China, and providing a space of dialogue and conversation focusing on the exchange of current critical viewpoints. All of these perceptions were grounded in the critical debates of our particular cultural contexts, separated by geography but linked through mutual engagement and a new type of sharing. This sharing process was expected to be like a journey, so, in some ways, this invitation to join this process was an invitation to a voyage of discovery.
