The AAC Most Influential Participants of Chinese Art Award is founded by artron.net and has been successfully held for 6 years. This six year-old event has grown to demonstrate its influence in many aspects. An exhibition of the award winning artists is probably the ideal way to give the achievements of the past six years a focused presentation.
If we put the names of all the award-winning artists together, we will be looking at a list of almost all the leading figures of China's contemporary art. The impact they have on art is the best evidence of the academic insightful judgement and the wide range the Award covers. It proves as well the positive value that the Award tried to present, and its significance in documenting the developing path of China's contemporary art.
As this exhibition is the first of a series of events of this year, it is titled "Those Leading Contemporary Art Practices" and subheaded " A Juried Invitational Exhibition of AAC (the Award of Art China)". The main idea is to give shape to a master picture of the past 6 editions of the Award and focus on a demonstration of the achievements of it. Contemporary art among all current art genres in China is emphasized in the event to expound the dominating position of it in China’s art development. The exhibition's selective invitation of just part of the awardwinning artists is another demonstration of the significance of the platform of the Award in the promotion of outstanding art in China.
