Fine Art History, Theory and Practice, Birmingham City University
My discursive and interdisciplinary research investigates the interconnectedness between contemporary artistic practices and urbanisation through the concept of urban imaginaries in the two largest metropolises and artistic centres of Mainland China, Beijing and Shanghai, since 2001. My research connects the two platforms of visual art and urban transformations with an alternative and unexplored pathway, namely imagination. By using the concept of urban imaginaries, I aim to provide alternative perspectives and understandings to read their relation as additive and creative and envision urban imaginaries.
