As the third event in the M+ Matters series organised by M+, Of the Moment: China's Museum Boom in Context will present the initial findings of research, now underway by Columbia University's China Megacities Lab, into the architectural and urbanistic implications surrounding China's new contemporary art museums. At the same time, M+ aims to place this survey within broader historical trajectories of museum-making, in order to pose questions about China's current museum models, and where M+ potentially fits within this dynamic landscape.

Participants include:

  • Jeffrey JOHNSON (Director, China Megacities Lab, Columbia University GSAPP)
  • Dr Seng KUAN (Assistant Professor, Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Washington University, St. Louis)
  • Dr Lü PENG (Director, Chengdu MOCA/Associate Professor (Art History & Theory), China Academy of Art)
  • Daan ROGGEVEEN (Curator, Hong Kong University (Faculty of Architecture), Shanghai Study Centre & Co-Founder of Go West Project)
