Brief overview (-)

The annual Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Greater China Research Programme supports practitioners to utilise Asia Art Archive’s extensive collection of primary source documents and develop new, in-depth historical research projects on topics relating to contemporary Chinese art. The inaugural grant was introduced in 2013.

: Final paper written upon a research project by Katherine Grube as the recipient of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Greater China Research Grant 2013.

Grube’s research project focuses on ‘Image and Phenomena’, a video art exhibition curated by Wu Meichun and Qiu Zhijie in 1996 at China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. The exhibition included the work of fifteen artists and presented the diverse formal applications of analog and digital video in contemporary artistic practice. Through associated publications and an academic symposium, ‘Image and Phenomena’ also sought to establish a theoretical and historical foundation for the continued development of video art in China. This research will situate ‘Image and Phenomena’ within a history of exhibition-making that activated public space and institutional sites for the promotion and legitimisation of alternative artistic practices in China, and seek to understand the exhibition as the conclusion of a decade of artistic experimentation and theoretical inquiry.
