The Chinese art market has changed drastically over the past few years. Chinese collectors are now even more open to acquire international art, which has created layers of affects throughout the Chinese art world. Some of these affects include investigations into what artwork is created, and what exhibitions the public wants to see. Simultaneously, economic climates are undergoing transformation, from international trade wars to declining growth rates. Beijing Art Summit International will invite the most experienced participants in the Chinese art market to share their experience in order to shed more light on these dynamic and complex topics.
Panel A: Action and Reaction: Responsive Art Markets
10:00–11:30, March 22
The recent growth of the Chinese art market has been based in part on the steady growth of the Chinese economy, an economy that withstood the previous financial crisis. As this paradigm seems to be shifting, what does mean for the Chinese art market and the recent influx of Western galleries into the region? Is this a temporary localized issue or part of larger global situation?

Panel B: New Tastes, Different Prospects
11:45–13:15, March 22
This conversation will be addressing the increasing appetite for art from abroad by Chinese collectors and institutions. What role is this taking in the evolution of artistic practices in China? How are art professionals globally handling and / or discussing this development? What may be the long-term effects, if any, on the complexity of what ‘taste’ implies across multiple regions.
