TALK with art historian Marianne Brouwer: Hans van Dijk, A Life with Art in China

The recent publication Hans van Dijk: A Life with Art in China (Witte de With Publishers and UCCA) is dedicated to the life and work of Hans van Dijk (NL, 1946) and his seminal role in Chinese contemporary art. Van Dijk was both a witness and a catalyst in the development of contemporary art in mainland China, where he lived and worked as a curator, art historian and gallerist from 1986 until his death in 2002. Marianne Brouwer, author and researcher of the publication, as well as curator of two exhibitions on the legacy of van Dijk organized in 2014 by Witte de With and UCCA (Beijing), will discuss the complex history of Chinese contemporary art together with Samuel Saelemakers, Witte de With curator and editor of the book.
