中间美术馆最新一期“中间实践”项目推出“从艺术到Yishu, 从Yishu到艺术”展览(2020.12.19-2021.3.19)，回顾《Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art》（典藏国际版）共100期的出版历程，从抽象的、无所不包的“艺术”概念落实到《Yishu》杂志的观点、编辑、写作、出版等切实的工作本身，以丰富我们对艺术的认知。
本周末，我们荣幸邀请郑胜天先生线上分享他与《Yishu》近二十年的历程。创立《Yishu》并担任总策划的华裔艺术家、学者郑胜天先生自1990年定居温哥华，长期在全球，特别是北美地区引介中国艺术和华人艺术家。创刊初期至2004年，加拿大华裔艺术家林荫庭（Ken Lum）担任主编。此后，加拿大策展人和艺术写作者华睿思（Keith Wallace）接任主编一职至2020年。我们将会围绕展览陆续开展一系列活动，邀请他们和经常为杂志撰稿的写作者们，请他们谈谈为什么会选择写作中国艺术、谈谈他们的写作经历，以及与编辑部沟通磨合的过程等，使我们更全面地了解《Yishu》大家庭的故事。

From Art to Yishu, From Yishu to Art
Beijing Inside-Out Art Museum “Inside-Out Practice” presents From Art to Yishu, From Yishu to Art (2020.12.19-2021.3.19), a retrospective of the publishing history of one hundred issues of Yishu. From the abstract and all-encompassing concept of “art,” to the practical work of the journal’s viewpoints, editing, writing, and publishing, all of these specific aspects of the journal have enriched our understanding of art.
Mark your calendar! We are glad to have invited Zheng Shengtian to share his nearly 20-year journey working with Yishu this weekend. The Founding Managing Editor of the journal, Zheng Shengtian, is a Chinese-Canadian artist and scholar who has resided in Vancouver since 1990. He has been a leading figure in promoting Chinese and overseas Chinese artists across the world, and especially in North America. Chinese-Canadian artist Ken Lum served as Yishu’s Founding Editor-in-Chief from its inauguration until 2004. Thereafter, Canadian curator and art writer Keith Wallace took over as Editor-in-Chief until 2020. A series of events will follow the opening of this exhibition. We will invite Ken Lum, Keith Wallace, and Yishu's frequent contributors to share their experience: why did they choose to write about Chinese art, what are their writing experiences, and how were their collaborations with the editorial team like? We hope to get a comphrehensive picture of the community Yishu has fostered.
