Art Nova 100 provides an essential role in increasing an international awareness of contemporary Chinese art. At the same time, it plays a vital role in supporting emerging Chinese and other Asian artists by working with artists and providing them with a venue for discussion and an exhibition space. I look forward to the growth of Art Nova 100 as a model to inspire other organizations to foster Chinese art as I believe that these kinds of enterprises are key to the success of today's artists. My experience at Art Nova 100 and of the Beijing artistic art scene in general was very positive, and I am particularly impressed with the wide range and strength of traditional visual means of expression combined with new investigations of materials. This is an exciting moment in Chinese contemporary art and I very much look forward to the deepening and broadening of this lively art scene and hope to have future opportunities to participate in its growth.
