Two Academic Lectures on Sep. 23

Beijing Inside-Out Art Museum


Joan Miró: The Universe in the Eye of an Ant

Speaker: Marko Daniel

Free admission

Time: September 23, 2018, 14:00 – 15:30

Venue: Conference Room, Inside-Out Art Museum

Joan Miró was one of the great artists of the twentieth century and produced a unique body of work in dialogue with international artists, poets, architects and intellectuals in Paris, London and New York. Yet, having left his hometown of Barcelona as a young man for the rich cultural environment of Paris, he always said that he was rooted in the earth of the Catalan landscape even while working on the most abstract concepts or seeking to deal with ideas of universal significance. In this talk, Marko Daniel will present an approach to Joan Miró’s work that holds up these creative tensions as the driving force for his work and the basis for his establishing of a museum in Barcelona that holds the largest collection of his work and exhibitions of modern and contemporary art.

Dealing with a New Market: Emerging Contemporary Art Market in China

Speaker:Svetlana Kharchenkova

Free admission

Time: September 23, 2018, 15:45-16:45

Venue: Conference Room, Inside-Out Art Museum

In the 1980s there was barely an art market in China and now it is one of the world’s largest. Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork in the Beijing contemporary art market and interviews with artists, art dealers, collectors, museum directors, auction house employees and others, this talk will discuss how market emergence is done and perceived by its participants. In particular, it will address how the valuation of art happens in this new market, how this market’s participants perceive their market, and how the contemporary art market in China relates to established art markets in Europe and the US.
