Respect for Art

Respect for Art

Respect for Art is the first book to grapple with issues of visual arts management and administration in China and the United States. A collaboration between two professors of arts administration, one in Beijing and one in New York City, it focuses on four areas: museums, non-profit spaces, the art market including commercial galleries, expositions and auction houses, and public art. The book identifies areas which seem similar— mechanisms for becoming a non-profit organization, tax laws regarding arts institutions—but which have substantial differences in history, culture and understanding; areas where both countries struggle with rapid change: the market for contemporary Chinese artists, the escalation of the auction house, the social relevance of public art; and concerns for the future, cultural and intellectual property, cultural policy, accessibility, art education, and the myriad of skills, sensitivity, theory and practice to sustain a healthy respect for art.
