Discourses on The East and West Boundaries in Curtis Carter’s Study of Contemporary Chinese Art under the Context of Globalization

Eva Kit Wah Man

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


Curtis Carter revealed that his interest in globalization in reference to Chinese contemporary art began with one of his writings in 2004, which started from global conceptual art in the works that are related to global exchanges taken place between China and the West. He has then studied the efforts of Chinese artists who worked on rich Chinese heritage while addressing the international art influences. He regards global art to be art that participates in worldwide cultural exchange or commerce. This talk will review some of Carter’s original observations with cases of contemporary Chinese artistic practice, and their curatorial discourses, to demonstrate the complicated East and West inter-train and the equilibrium tactics, as well as the hegemonic fervors.
