    Su Wei (born in Beijing) is an art writer, art history researcher and curator based in Beijing. He is currently a Researcher at the Tsinghua University Art Museum. In 2014, he was awarded first place at the first International Awards for Art Criticism (IAAC). Su Wei’s work in recent years focuses on re-constructing the narrative—and radical imagination—of contemporary Chinese art history, and explores the roots of the legitimacy and rupture of contemporary Chinese art history in a global context. Pivotal to his work is the attempt to take the “post-1949” as the key in understanding artistic production in a contemporary situation, and in so doing he seeks to re-define the stance and possibilities of art in nowadays China. He thus engages in an anti-establishment critical practice by mapping the limits, contextual clues and unconscious energies of the post-1949 art production, which figures the dual presence of decay and emptiness.


    Su Wei (China) is an independent curator who now splits his time between Beijjing and Hong Kong.
