Curated independently by Guangdong Museum of Art with the support and guidance of the Department of Culture and Tourism of Guangdong Province, “GDMoA Annual Artist Academic Nomination Exhibition (2023)” is an exhibition program aiming to improve the museum’s research structure for contemporary art. As a stage for artists to showcase and communicate, the exhibition demonstrates the current situation through the artists’ works. Continuing the cutting-edge research of the first exhibition, we have adopted the expert evaluation system to ensure the academic quality and professionalism of the 2nd “GDMoA Annual Artist Academic Nomination Exhibition”. To this end, we have invited curators and scholars who have been long engaged in art theory research with a high degree of concern, sensitivity and observation of Chinese contemporary art, to jointly set up “the Academic Committee of the 2nd GDMoA Annual Artist Academic Nomination Exhibition”. The committee is composed of heads of organizations, senior scholars and independent curators with broad horizons and influence. In this exhibition, members of the committee together present the diversity and pioneering exploration of the contemporary art ecology from their own perspectives.
