Chinese Contemporary Arts Prize
In November 2010 ISD and the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation established the foundations for a new Chinese Contemporary Arts Prize. Its aim is to raise the global profile of Chinese contemporary art and to enable new talent and standards of excellence to be developed within China’s burgeoning art scene.The Prize benefits from an Advisory Board comprised of international and Chinese experts in contemporary art and Chinese culture. At the inaugural Advisory Board Meeting in Beijing, Chinese and international members met to discuss such matters as the mission of the prize, the role of the board, the artist nomination process and the role and composition of the jury.
This initiative builds on the major conference held in Beijing in 2009 when ISD took a group of 35 international experts from the art world to meet with a group of their Chinese counterparts to discuss global art collecting today.
