Liu Ding is an artist and curator from Beijing who will be here for one month to develop his existing project 'Liu Ding's store ' in conversations'; a project which establishes thinking and discussion centred around the value of art.
For the project Liu Ding initiates conversations with fellow artists, curators and gallery directors. During his residency, Liu Ding will invite local arts practitioners to take part in the project. The participants of the conversations are always limited: the artist himself, the invited guest and a moderator. This moderator, played by Carol Yinghua Lu, an art critic and curator, will start the conversations by stating the time, date, place, participants present and will explain the concept, rules and formats of the conversations.
