FREE TRADE 自由貿易 貿易自由 features artists and designers who examine the geopolitical history of the movement of goods across the Pacific Ocean, and propose a more socially just, ecological global supply chain. The exhibition is inspired by the Bay Area’s significant role in the development of modern transoceanic trade and the Chinese Culture Center’s unique site between San Francisco’s Financial District and Chinatown. FREE TRADE riffs on the current political climate and talk of trade (dis)agreements, providing an opportunity for conversations about art and commerce, the complexities of consumption, artistic production, cultural exchange, and the high human cost of capitalism. With a nod to the “gift shop,” selected artworks are available for purchase and immediate takeaway – souvenirs of a more thoughtful kind.

 

《自由貿易,貿易自由》重點呈現藝術家、設計師探討跨太平洋貨物流動的地緣政治歷史,以及倡導全球供應鏈生態合理化的作品。該展覽受到灣區作為現代跨洋貿易的聚集地的重要地位所啟發,也同時回應了展覽所在地中華文化中心的位置:舊金山金融區及中國城之間。《自由貿易,貿易自由》反覆質詢當前政治氣候以及與之對應的貿易協議或分歧的對話,它提供了一次機會來探討藝術與商業,消費複雜性,藝術生產,文化交流,以及資本主義高度消耗等問題。作為一次在設計品商店進行的展覽,所選藝術作品可供購買,甚至可以說它們是體現思考和社會關懷的紀念品。
