The Compatible Bazaar Art Program
While contemporary art is characterized by the "White Cube" (art gallery/art space) and the quest for uniqueness, the latest practice of art is about introducing multiple means to penetrate people's daily life and tacit encryption. And hence compatibility has become the first criterion of the downloadable aesthetic forms.
In the era of cultural globalization and interconnectivity, "The Compatible Bazaar Art Program" aims to explore and develope the "compatible" art formats by the artists that connect with the social environment. Initiated by XiYiTang-Shanghai International Art Graduate School and having been included in the reseach project of "Creation & Globalization" of the National Superior School of Art of Nancy in France, this art program will run for one year with the operational support by Shanghai Deyi Culture & Art Consultancy. In this program, art in different forms will be showcased in the dock of this experimental bazaar. In a small area of 2.70 x 2.70 m, the bazaar seems no different than others in the Xinhua Commodities Market on Anshui Road. Without doors, signs and introduction, this bazaar space is awaiting for artists to fill it with their creative ideas, as well as to immerse it with the surroundings so that the relationship with everyday life is immediately established.
Xia Yilan and Paul Devautour, creative heads of "The Compatible Bazaar Art Program" will introduce to the audience some of the 25 completed art projects since Sep 2011. Some participating artists of this program will also present to share their experience They are Chen Xiaodan, Wang Yuhong, François Trezin and Xu Zhifeng.
