The week in Chinese visual culture: 7-13 September

September 13, 2009

*The Shanghai edition of Talk! magazine discussed the Chinese contemporary art bubble and its differences in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. If you’ll be in Shanghai this month, check out a new exhibition that profiles the history of Shanghai contemporary art.

*RedBox Review is “China. Art. Current. Concise.” If you don’t already read it, you’re missing out on thoughtful, well-written posts about the latest Chinese contemporary art from a Beijing perspective.

*ChinaLuxCultureBiz commented on the rising numbers of Chinese graduates pursuing careers in arts administration. According to the original article, the young female arts administrator who was interviewed advised students to develop “strong background knowledge” for success in the field. But notably absent was any discussion of studying art history, because the field does not really exist in China.

*Did you know that the creator of the pop culture icon known as the Twitter “fail whale” is Shanghai-born artist and designer Yiying Lu?
