Art of Change Digital Archive

We are pleased to announce that the Art of Change Digital Archive is now available to view in LADA’s Study Room in London.

A specially-created interactive digital archive, produced for the recent Art of Change exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, this collection aims to locate current Chinese performance and installation practices within a broader context of artistic production and exhibition-making in China.

Comprised of a sequence of some 130 key events, exhibitions and performances, as well as images, and expert commentary, it traces the development of installation and performance art in China from 1979 to the present day.

The archive is available for browsing or for in-depth study and can be accessed from a dedicated workstation in the Live Art Development Agency Study Room, a free, open access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics and other arts professionals.
