@ CoBo Challenge
Host: Selina Ting (Editor of Chief of COBO Social)


A notable writer, critic, art curator, and expert in Contemporary Chinese Art, Philip Tinari is the director of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in Beijing. After telling us about the latest show of Scandinavian duo Elmgreen & Dragset creating a fake art fair in UCCA, CoBo challenges him by a question: if curator is water, what is the role of artist? And…which artist would he date?
