East West Bank and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) are engaged in a two-year collaborative project on the acquisition of contemporary Chinese art. Working to develop a collection representative of this art’s breadth and dynamism, and with the generous support of chairman, president, and CEO of East West Bank, Dominic Ng, MOCA Assistant Curator Rebecca Morse has traveled to China to meet with leading artists, curators, and gallery directors. Through her efforts, the collection now includes works by such internationally recognized figures as Xu Bing, Zhan Wang, and Cai Guoqiang.
In her talk, Morse will address the opportunities and challenges that accompany the creation of a major museum collection. She will also reflect on her own experiences directing a transnational curatorial project designed to foster increased awareness of China’s emergent art scene.
