Defining my goals for course
I am a freelance journalist and copywriter with a deep interest in contemporary art. I have no formal art history training. However, I seize opportunities to do short courses like these from reputable institutions that will give me a better grasp of how contemporary art works and what it is about.
I hope the course will introduce me to Chinese contemporary art, in the first instance, since I am not familiar with it. Secondly, I hope to become familiar with the major players and themes of Chinese contemporary art. Thirdly, I hope to understand the context and learn something of the techniques involved in the creation of Chinese contemporary art. Finally, I hope to learn enough to be able to advance my goal of becoming an art market copywriter.
