There are many countries whose artists have been forced underground for periods of time. I think that the CCAA model can be used not just for China but around the world for:
1. How to collect a true representation of a period in art (unselfishly)
2 How to legitimize the art (establishing networks of globally recognized experts)
3 How to present the art to the rest of the world(participation in prestigious worldwide art venues)
4 How to anticipate & overcome resistance (governmental controls , market bias)
5 How to encourage & promote future artists(recognition, inclusion in the process)
6 The need to document the process and its historical significance
The importance of ever-expanding networks was emphasized in this unit to show us that networks provide a way to maximize participation and thus increase global exposure.
