The First Guangzhou Triennial

Reinterpretation: A Decade of Experimental Chinese Art (1990-2000)

November 18, 2002 – January 19, 2003


The ten years from 1990 to 2000 represented a crucial stage in the development of Chinese experimental art. Thoroughly internationalized, this art also responded to tremendous changes in Chinese society. Many artists devoted themselves to experimenting with new art mediums and forms, exploring new territories in artistic expression and representation. Their experiments attracted worldwide attention among art critics and curators, and played an increasingly important role in shaping a domestic visual culture in Mainland China.

Since it was opened to the public in 1997, Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou (Canton), China, has been promoting the research and presentation of Chinese art of modern and contemporary periods. Hence, it has initiated the Guangzhou Triennial, beginning with the current exhibition entitled Reinterpretation: A Decade of Experimental Chinese Art (1990-2000).

As the first comprehensive survey of Chinese experimental art of the 1990s, The First Guangzhou Triennial features the most significant works created in these ten years. The title, Reinterpretation, highlights the organizer's intention to provide a systematic introduction to and explanation of these works in their artistic, cultural, social, and political context. The main part of the exhibition includes three thematic sections -- Memory and Reality, Self and Environment, and Global and Local. An additional section, titled "Experimentation Continues," features works by fifteen invited artists that indicate new directions in contemporary Chinese art after year 2000.

In conjunction with this exhibition, the Guangdong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Art Development Bureau will organize an international symposium on contemporary art exhibitions and curatorial practices. This symposium will bring together museum directors, curators, and critics in and out of China to discuss some major issues: How to develop local characteristics and multi-culturalism in contemporary art exhibitions when the process of globalization continues to deepen and intensify? How to employ and renew “universal” models of art exhibitions according to local situations and needs? How to deal with the conflict between experimentation and public acceptance in art exhibitions? What are the major challenges that museum directors and curators face at this moment in history?
