Path which was overcome by Chinese art during it\'s evolution and development since late 70-es is an important process: Chinese art-scene finally ended up with it\'s old function of servicing political interests and became multi-genre varied phenomenon. Different forms of art obtained their own space for existence and development. Traditional and contemporary arts bond together. Appearance of contemporary Chinese art can be explained by historical necessity. In her lecture, Martina mentioned that starting from 2000-ies Chinese government started to support contemporary art actively. In nearest future 1000 museums will be built in China.
