Mission Statement

Gao Minglu Contemporary Art Research Center is a non-profit academic research institution that undertakes new research, archives information, curates exhibitions, organizes conferences publishes scholarly research regarding Chinese contemporary art on global level.

Chinese contemporary art has emerged into a new phase after thirty years of development. It not only confronts many problems in practice and criticism, but it also responds to the development of old and new institutions, art market, and a variety of situations filled with opportunities and challenges. The status quo is that market-oriented commercial space has been eastablished at an unprecedented pace on the one hand, while state-supported art institutions have bacome more and more dominant on the other. Nonetheless, there is no non-goventment academic institution that concentrates on research and study, thus, establishment of such “Third Space” institution located in China is imperative.

Founding of Gao Minlu Contemporary Art Research Center attempts to fill this need. We believe that only a non-government, non-profit research institution can build a channel between the art market and governmental institution. In the West, for decades, this kind of institution has been established, and it is from this successful model which we plan to emulate. Our institution is the first of its kind in China and we intend that it will operate on a national as well as international level.

Our research center is registered in New York City, but it will operated in China. We believe this arrangement will enable us to meet international academic standards, and to apply national and international sources, creating an international platform for study of contemporary Chinese art, open to the entire world.
