Looking to new institutional models: China's cultural landscape by mid-century 


Museum 2050 is a Shanghai-based platform for investigating key issues about the future of cultural institutions in China and abroad from a local perspective. Additionally, Museum 2050 has a distinct focus on being a resource for young people from all over China, many of whom largely work and inhabit these institutions, as well as providing a place to converse, share ideas and create a vibrant museum community. With a focus on the date 2050, the platform hopes to evolve into a lasting forum in which the questions raised can be further explored over the coming years. As part of our mission, Museum 2050 is hosting a symposium, Looking to new institutional models: China’s cultural landscape by mid-century, at the Long Museum, Shanghai on June 9, 2018.  

“美术馆2050”是一个位于上海的交流平台,我们从微观的角度探讨国内外文化机构之未来。我们有一个明确的目标,既是为中国各地从事美术馆行业的年轻人提供一个交流的平台,通过分享想法创建一个充满活力的美术馆群体。论坛将2050年定为焦点,寄希望于平台的持久性,期待在未来几年中可以进一步探讨提出的问题。 作为我们使命的一部分,美术馆2050将于2018年6月9-10日在上海龙美术馆举办“展望新机构模式:中世纪中叶的中国文化景观”研讨会。

In this inaugural symposium, we seek to critically examine the diverse museum practices in both official and private domains of the Greater China Region. Speakers will investigate how institutional frameworks are fostered by the unique social and cultural dynamics at play. In doing so, we hope to bring forth discussions to challenge the existing models through which China’s cultural development has been considered. By looking at the intersection of these various threads, we seek to reveal the unique audience experience that is emerging in China, offering a particular focus on the complex cultural and temporal dimensions of museum-going and its relationship to sociality and contemplation.
