Abstract

The Making of A Modern Art World' explores the artistic institutions and discursive practices prevailing in Republican Shanghai, aiming to reconstruct the operational logic and the stratified hierarchy of Shanghai?s art world. Using 'guohua' as the point of entry, this book interrogates the discourse both of 'guohua' itself, and the wider discourse of Chinese modernism in the visual arts. In the light of the sociological definition of 'art world', this book contextualizes 'guohua' through focusing on the modes of production and consumption of painting in Shanghai, examining newly adopted modern artistic practices, namely, art associations, periodicals, art colleges, exhibitions, and the art market.
