“Notes: Chinese Artistic and Intellectual Voices from the End of the Twentieth Century” (hereinafter referred to as “Notes”) is a new chapter in the study of the history of Chinese contemporary art in the second half of the 20th century, succeeding our previous exhibition “Waves and Echoes.”
Curators: Liu Ding, Carol Yinghua Lu
By presenting words, notes, images, documents, archives, and works of artists, curators, and scholars, “Notes” surveys the trends of thinking and practices of China’s intellectual and artistic communities at the turn of the century. Upon entering the 1990s, the concepts and imagery of the end of the century and the 21st century made constant appearances in the discourses and creative works of scholars and artists of that time. On one hand, they attempted to break away from the semantic and interpretive system of the 1980s and establish a system of social reality and value that directly addressed and belonged to the 1990s. On the other hand, they perceived the arrival of the turn of the century as a significant point in time that brought them expectations as well as a sense of complexity and sorrow, caused by the shock of the market-oriented economy. Through these traces of reflection, we witness scholars and artists of the time retrieving, examining, and reassessing the experiences, experiments, emotions, trends, and debates of the 20th century. In this case, this exhibition also becomes a historical “notebook” that documents the existential and creative state of thinkers and practitioners at the turn of the century.

We would like to acknowledge the following artists, curators, and scholars for their generous support and contribution to this exhibition:

“笔记——来自二十世纪末的中国声音”展(以下简称“笔记”展)是继“巨浪与余音”展之后对20世纪下半叶中国当代艺术史研究的新篇章。“笔记”展通过展示艺术家、策展人与学者的话语、笔记、图像、文件、档案和作品,回顾了中国知识界与艺术界在世纪之交的思考与走向。进入1990年代之后,世纪末与21世纪的概念与意象不断地出现在那个时期的学人与艺术家的话语和创作之中。一方面,他们尝试脱离1980年代的语汇与阐释系统,建立直面和属于1990年代的社会现实与价值体系;另一方面,他们感知到一个重大的时间节点,即世纪之交的到来,心中涌动着期许,也在市场大潮的冲击下感受到复杂与悲凉。通过这些思考的痕迹,我们聆听到彼时的学者与艺术家们对于20世纪的经验、实验、情感、思潮和论战的检索、审视与重估。这个展览也成为一本历史的“笔记”,记录了思考者与实践者在世纪之交的生存处境和创作状态。
