Art faculty and students travel to Beijing to study museum culture
A Colby team of six students and two faculty are traveling to Beijing to study the growth of “cultural industries” in China through examining the role museums, especially contemporary art museums, play in society and politics. They will volunteer at the Inside-Out Art Museum and conduct research on the New Museum Culture in China through visits to museums, galleries, auction houses, artists’ studios, and collectors’ homes.
