Why (Art)History Is a Western Invention: An Introduction to Self-Writing
Digital lecture by Victor Wang (王宗孚)
Expanding on theorist Dipesh Chakrabarty’s hypothesis that all history is European history, Wang will explore the construction of art history via inter-regional art histories in Asia(s) and diasporic praxis that go between communities and geographies as a new way of re-thinking this historical subject, and the current method of canon building.
Victor Wang (王宗孚): is currently Artistic Director and Chief Curator of the M WOODS museums in Beijing. He was editor of the publication’ Performance Histories from East Asia 1960s–90s’, Curator of Frieze Live for Frieze Art Fair London, (2020), and founder of the ‘Institute of Asian Performance Art’. Prior to this, Wang curated exhibitions between commercial and non-commerical institutions such as Lisson Gallery, London, Nationalgalerie, Berlin, Wifredo Lam Contemporary Art Center, Havana, Sadie Coles HQ, London, and K11 Art Foundation, Shanghai, and curated the first large-scale museum surveys in China of Ryuichi Sakamoto; Giorgio Morandi; Richard Tuttle; and the first institutional solo shows in China of Haroon Mirza, Katja Novitskova, Jac Leirner, and Neïl Beloufa. Wang has written for art periodicals such as Artforum, Art Review, and in 2016 he was awarded the AICA Incentive Prize for Young Critics by the International Association of Art Critics.
