The Rockbund Art Museum and Shanghai Project are pleased to collaborate and jointly present an international conference, entitled ‘AUDIENCES,’ on 25-26 March, 2017, in Shanghai. As the first initiative in China dedicated to the topic of audiences of contemporary art, this conference includes a symposium and a series of free-form conversations, bringing together leading thinkers and practitioners in the community from both across China and the rest of the world.

“You were born poor, and no matter how rich you become in the future, poverty runs in your blood.” The words of Song Dong’s mother have left an enduring imprint on his mind. He believes that “the poor”, as demonstrated in one of his lasting art project “Wisdom of the Poor”, does not refer to those who own little wealth or property, “instead, it refers to everyone faced with ‘predicament’ in life.”
