  • Ros Holmes (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


This international symposium explored the role that gender has played in the development of Chinese contemporary art.

Co-organised by Tate Research Centre: Asia and Central Academy of Fine Arts China, the symposium was split into two sessions. The first gave a critical overview of the subject, including a paper by Monica Merlin that provided a history of contemporary art by women in China, a paper by Ros Holmes that took up the new condition of artistic creation and distribution through digital and mediated spaces, and a panel discussion moderated by Wenny Teo. The second session focussed on individual practices, with artist presentations from Nabuqi, Ma Qiusha and Ye Funa followed by a discussion moderated by Song Xiaoxia.
