After the first launch conference and forum of global contemporary art "Black Book" Frieze A to Z of Contemporary Art in Beijing, Boundless Books will host it again at HOW Art Museum (Shanghai) on September
This time, YANG Hao, a publisher at the Boundless Books, has invited XU Zhen, the only Chinese artist selected by Frieze A to Z of Contemporary Art, QIN, Siyuan, writer of the article about XU in the book, critic and curator, and JIANG Jun, an artist and artistic critic, to discuss about topics like "what is the taste of contemporary publishing at home and abroad”.
About the book
Frieze A to Z of Contemporary Art is not just a "black book" about contemporary art, but also an overall text about the contemporary people, culture and society. The book draws the artistic and cultural maps of the past half century with delicate comments and fluent description, sketches out the vanguard of contemporary art, forms the trajectory of the times and tries to explore new ways of understanding art and even thinking about the world. If you do not read the Frieze A to Z of Contemporary Art, your understanding of contemporary art is at least 30 years behind.
Boundless Books has invited the famous scholar WANG Min’an to preface for the new Chinese version of Frieze A to Z of Contemporary Art. The book is translated by Yan Beiwen, senior editor of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and designed by MA Shirui, winner of "China's Most Beautiful Book"
