推荐语
在这本双语的《从艺术出发》中,罗菲体悟圣言、重建艺术伦理、聆听良知关于艺术与艺术家的感动,将中外艺术家的故事熔铸在其先知般的角色认定与艺术现象的批评直觉中。该书记录了中国云南近十年来的当代艺术的发生,是一部在全球化视野下的地方艺术史,有文献,有思想,更有立场,还有一幕幕展览、创作的现场的原初叙述。如果一年当中只读一部微艺术史,你就应当《从艺术出发》。
——查常平博士(批评家、圣经学者,《人文艺术》主编,成都)

通过他自己的作品以及在TCG诺地卡的工作,罗菲成为了一个重要的建桥者,联通了不同的艺术家,也连接了艺术和社会,他为我们展开了对艺术、信仰和社会的关注与反思。
——杨富雷博士(哥德堡大学汉学副教授,瑞典汉学博士)

在艺术界,已经有很多人和画廊对艺术品的各类价格了然于胸,然而对其价值却毫无所知。罗菲等艺术家开辟了一种区别于资本主导模式或国家主导模式的可能性,这被侯瀚如称作为“第三条道路”。
——安德士•古斯塔夫松(TCG诺地卡前任项目总监,瑞典)

About Author
Luo Fei is a curator, art critic and artist born in 1982 in Chongqing who currently lives and works in Kunming. He graduated in 2004 from the Fine Arts College of Yunnan Arts University, where he majored in printmaking. Since 2002, he has been primarily engaged in the creation of performance art, video works, and other forms of conceptual art, exhibiting both within China and abroad. In 2005, he planned and initiated the art project “Jianghu,” which received much national attention. Luo Fei has been Gallery Director of TCG Nordica Cultural Center in Kunming since 2007, where he curates and organizes numerous international exhibitions and cross-cultural projects. He also contributes art reviews and artist interviews to various media platforms. Paying particular attention to the spiritual connotations of works, Luo Fei has dedicated himself to the description of what makes local Chinese contemporary art scenes unique within international greater art landscape, building bridges for dialogue and collaboration in the Chinese contemporary art field in an increasingly globalized world.

Book Introduction
This book uses examples from the past decade of contemporary art in Yunnan Province to demonstrate developments in Chinese art and ideas. It is divided into five sections: “Landscape in Transition”, “Artist as Prophet”, “Past and Present”, “Local Experiments” and “Using Art to Build Bridges”. Topics for each section include, respectively, discussions of the possibility of landscape art in the contemporary era, the mission and identity of the artist, the impact of changing real life circumstances on artists, the local Yunnan art scene, and daily chronicles of two international exchange programs. An active young curator and artist, the author weaves together assessments of the artistic value of various works, descriptions of their social context, and artists’ personal stories to paint a portrait of a vibrant and fresh art scene. The book has been translated in its entirety into English, making it an important resource for Western readers seeking a deeper understanding of Chinese society and arts over the past ten years.

“In this bilingual book To Start from Art, Luo Fei grasps the Word, rebuilds artistic morals, and listens to his conscience about what moves art and artists, forging the stories of Chinese and international artists into his view of the artist’s prophetic role and his critical insight into artistic phenomena. The book records the contemporary art events of Yunnan over the past decade, and stands as a local art history with global vision, complete with documents, ideas, views and original accounts of many exhibitions and scenes of creation. If you only read one art micro-history this year, it should be To Start from Art.”
——Dr. Zha Changping
Critic, Biblical Scholar, Chief-editor of Journal for Humanities and Art, Chengdu

“Through his own work and his work with TCG Nordica, Luo Fei is an important bridge builder between artists, between art and society, opening up for reflection on art, faith and social concerns.”
——Fredrik Fällman
Associate Professor of Chinese Studies; University of Gothenburg, Sweden

“The art scene already has so many people and galleries that know the price of everything, but the value of nothing. Luo Fei is one of those artists who opens up a space of what Hou Hanru would call a ‘third way’ — something different from the capitalist-dominated or state-dominated models.”
——Anders Gustafsson
Former Program Director of TCG Nordica Gallery, Sweden
