REF2021 UoA32_ICSA Repositioning Chinese Contemporary Art in the Globalised Art World

    Impact: Cultural impacts

    Description of impact

    The research of Jiang Jiehong in the Centre for Chinese Visual Art has had a substantial impact on perceptions in the West of Chinese art. It has been far-reaching in its effect, having influenced curatorial practices the UK, China and elsewhere globally, fundamentally informing cultural policy for civic, governmental and other organisations.

    Jiang’s international curatorial activity has repositioned contemporary Chinese art from being a marginalised topic to one where it is recognised as fully engaging with current global concerns and manifests itself in innovative and methodologically diverse ways. Through the establishment of large-scale network partnerships and transcultural exchange programmes, artists from China are now squarely located within the international artistic milieu.
