Watch: M WOODS Co-Founder Michael Xufu Huang on How Art is Changing in China’s Digital Age


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.

Earlier this year RADII invited Huang to Hangzhou “unconference” 2050 to participate in our inaugural FUTURE OF X series. In this video, you can discover his insights from the forefront of China’s modern art scene.
