Chinese Contemporary Art Prize
In November 2010 ISD (Institute for Strategic Dialogue) and the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation established the foundations for a new Chinese Contemporary Arts Prize. Its aim is to raise the global profile of Chinese Contemporary Art and to enable new talent and standards of excellence to be developed within China’s burgeoning art scene. The Prize benefits from an Advisory Board comprised of international and Chinese experts in contemporary art and Chinese culture.
At the inaugural Advisory Board Meeting in Beijing, Chinese and international members met to discuss such matters as the mission of the prize, the role of the board, the artist nomination process and the role and composition of the jury. Eight Art Gallery welcomes such initiatives in order to get more recognition for the Chinese contemporary artists.
