Realized in six stages, “The Power of the Public Realm” was a curatorial project dedicated to artistic practices conventionally excluded from Chinese contemporary culture. In its curation, the exhibition attempted to transform this highly exclusive model of cultural production by highlighting a plethora of narratives informed by the artists’ distinctive and often self-taught techniques. By inviting the artists to travel from Yan’an and other rural regions to the exhibition space in Beijing, the exhibition opened up a discursive field between two distinct conditions of cultural production.
