Study Day: In Search of a New Sincerity? Contemporary Art from China

Study Day at Tate Liverpool on Saturday 21 April 2007.
This study day consists of a mix of illustrated talks and interactive workshops in the galleries, exploring the context and precedents for the work on show in The Real Thing: Contemporary Art from China. The question that will be tackled throughout the day is whether there is in fact a new sincerity in Chinese Art.

The Real Thing: Contemporary Art from China reflects the varied and complex nature of contemporary art in China, and presents a comprehensive overview of some of the most interesting and important art to be made since 2000. Working in close collaboration with the Beijing-based writer and curator Karen Smith, and the Shanghai-based artist, critic and curator Xu Zhen, Simon Groom, Head of Exhibitions at Tate Liverpool, has spent several years researching the artists and works for the exhibition. The exhibition features work by eighteen artists, in a variety media, and includes several large-scale installations, and several new commissions.

Argh - just my sort of thing. Why does it have to be three hours away by train? :(

I find it is not too bad to get to Liverpool by train as I have been a number of times. But that said it does depend on the day and since they keep doing engineering works at the weekend it makes journeys far worse :(
