2013 RAM FORUMSep 13, 2013 Friday 09:30 - 18:00

  • The HUGO BOSS ASIA ART, a new biennale award initiated by HUGO BOSS and Rockbund Art Museum, takes special focus on contemporary art in Asia to think, invent and represent the social, economical and cultural changes of Asia in a post-global era.

    The inaugural edition of this prestigious award recognizes the works of Chinese emerging contemporary artists and will feature finalists in a group exhibition from which a winner will be selected. Meanwhile, HUGO BOSS ASIA ART activates an on-going research platform re-mapping the contemporary art in Asia with symposia, dialogues, lectures and publications, presenting, reflecting and contributing to the radical transformation and evolvement of art in this region.

    Entitled ASIA ART MUTATIONS: LANGUAGE AND SOCIAL PRACTICE, this symposium sets out to address the challenges of art practices in Asia of this time. Among them, the questions of the language and social practice in the art have become eminent. In these two terms we wishes to analyze how the art in Asia demonstrates the richness and diversities of its areas, how specific, active,critical and powerful are its qualities, how contemporary art in Asia explores its own long and rich traditions, also its continuous, dynamic interactions between local and international contexts and forces,. This is one of the most exciting and beautiful facets of the art in Asia today which however generates complex questions and demands in-depth probes from all possible angles.
