Abstract

In China the separation and agglomeration of urban practices and functions often differ from the ones that can be found in western cultures. This is also the case of many art spaces in Shenzhen. Flagship city of China and the most successful among the four special economic zones instituted by Deng Xiaoping. Shenzhen has been rapidly developing after the Chinese Economic Reform of 1978. The cities art scene is undergoing a fast and dynamic growth. In this context new hybrid forms of art spaces are crystallizing. This research investigates in these new forms of cultural production by analysing the artistic and curatorial practices within a case study of two art spaces. This can be analysed through a dense net of a theoretical framework based on Cultural Studies and a qualitative methodological cluster system based on Grounded Theory. This study aims at shading new light on the development of two hybrid spaces of cultural production in post-reform China and to reveal how these spaces influence the wider system of the urban grid.
