China Cultural Centre is honored to present you the free talk “The Trends and Concepts of Chinese Contemporary Art since the 1980s” by Professor Zhao Li.
The environment of China’s artistic creation, mainly in terms of social, economic and cultural backgrounds, has witnessed vicissitudes in the past three decades. Due to rapid social and economic development since the beginning of the 21st century, “change” has become the most prominent feature of Chinese society, exerting an in-depth influence on Chinese art and culture. China’s contemporary art has evolved from learning from the west to independent breeding thanks to the challenges it has weathered.
