Chapter 6: looking back at Goals
I was mainly driven by curiosity, getting to know more about another form of contemporary art, Uli Sigg and Chinese artists. To that extent all my goals were met.
I found the approach centered around the CCAA award very useful. It is a way to approach a vast new continent in the art world; but through a concrete example which leads to many relevant comparisons between China and the West and great interviews: Uli Sigg, Ai Wei Wei, etc with a special mention to Kathleen Buehler (so structured and insightful answers for a newcomer to Chinese contemporary art like me).
I would have appreciate probably more readings about the art ecosystem in China (5 main museums, presence of major art galleries, some readings about other art collectors, different schools if any within the artist scene) and also some information about main 10-20 art awards/prizes worldwide (Turner, Pictet... What else) to better compare with the CCAA.
Very pleased with the class. The 3-4 last chapters in particular. Many thanks!
