Flattery or Abuse: Art Criticism in China
Chinese art criticism has a long history. However, modern art criticism in China did not begin until the second half of the 20th century. After 40 years development, art criticism in China has changed from political criticism into commercial criticism. The pressures of ideology are replaced by the worries about capitalist co-option of criticism. Flattery and Abuse are the inevitable results of commercial and political criticism. Only academic criticism can help art criticism get out of this crisis.
