Aims and Scopes
The Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art is a scholarly forum for new research into and critical debate on the subject of contemporary Chinese art. The journal welcomes contributions that address contemporary art produced in mainland China, Hong Kong-Macau and Taiwan as well as in relation to diasporic and trans-national Chinese cultural communities world-wide. The journal also welcomes contributions that address the relationship between Chinese cultural thought and practice and contemporary art of non-Chinese origin. The journal is open to non-standard contributions such as photographic essays and conversations for publication alongside its more usual peer-reviewed content.

Areas of research and debate that the journal will explore include, but are by no means limited to:
  • Contemporary art with a relationship to Chinese society, culture and history
  • Art-historical and critical writing related to the reception of contemporary Chinese art
  • Curatorial theory and practice related to the exhibition/display of contemporary      Chinese art
  • Contemporary Chinese aesthetics (as seen from Chinese and non-Chinese cultural perspectives)
  • The contemporary Chinese art market
  • Issues of historical importance to the development of contemporary Chinese art (e.g. cultural interaction and exchange between China and the West prior to the emergence of contemporary Chinese art)
