Alexandre Ouairy is a doctoral researcher in the Department of History of Art and Archeology at SOAS. He is investigating Chinese contemporary art history, under the supervision of Professor Shane McCausland.
His research explores the transformation of contemporary art practices in response to Xi’s China by examining the interplay between artists, institutions, the market economy, and censorship. His interests lie in cultural and visual studies, critical theory, aesthetics and practices of the self in contemporary China.
