Five researchers and curators in China respond to Exhibition Histories publications, commissioned by Inside-Out Art Museum, Beijing. Each text explores a different book in the series, looking at how they brings new perspectives to each contributor’s practice, and how they relate to a Chinese context. The texts are published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Afterall Exhibition Histories and its Worlds’ co-curated by Huang Wenlong and Scarly Zhou. They include:
