In the digital age, visual art can spread across the world in a matter of seconds, a phenomenon that offers great opportunities but also provides a number of challenges. How are artists in China responding to this and the general creep of technology into every area of our lives? And how are traditional art institutions having to adapt in this ever-shifting environment?
As a co-founder of Beijing’s visionary M WOODS museum, a collector of key new media and post-internet works from some of China’s most exciting artists, and someone with a hand in an array of blockchain and AI projects, Michael Xufu Huang is uniquely positioned to examine these issues and explore the FUTURE OF CULTURE IN THE DIGITAL AGE. The talk will be moderated by Rilly Chen.
Date May 26th, 2018
Time 11:00AM – 12:00PM
