Reinventing Traditions in Contemporary Chinese Art

The project

Funded by the Leverhulme Trust, composed by six partners, the two-year international network project Everyday Legend: Reinventing Traditions in Chinese Contemporary Art (2016 - 2018) takes on an interdisciplinary approach to the subject beyond the fields of arts and crafts, and is extended to the perspectives of anthropology, socio-politics, cultural policy and tourism.
