A Comparative Study of Contemporary Chinese and Western Art Criticism Concepts From a Cross-Cultural Perspective

Feng JIA


Art criticism is not only the interpretation, but also the vane guiding contemporary art creation. Especially in the pattern of artistic creation influenced by contemporary pluralistic ideological trends, the value and function of criticism have been paid more and more attention. From the perspective of cross-cultural research, this paper makes a comparative study of the values of contemporary Chinese and western art criticism from three aspects: the picture and text of criticism, subjectivity and modernity, in order to explore the construction of a text paradigm suitable for the current context of Chinese art criticism in the review and reflection of the academic system of contemporary Chinese art criticism.
