-Special reports on the impact of global financial crisis on Chinese art market.

For anybody who still watches the news these days, the international art market, which some think is led by the phenomenal rise of contemporary Chinese art, is on the brink of tumbling. Pieces that would have easily fetched hundreds of thousands of dollars have gone unsold at auctions; galleries have shut down in the middle of refurbishment; and artists who had previously been limoed around for show openings have suddenly found time to paint...ChinaDaily interviewed Jerome Sans, director of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art and Amelie Gallery director Mrs. Long Yu who shared their insight.

Goodbye to snobbery but how long will it last?

By all signs, 798 Art District - the number refers to its 1950s central Bauhaus building - seems to have embarked on a "de-gentrification" process of its own. The wave of bourgeois bohemia, with its special mix of commerce, public spiritedness and urban snobbery, has been receding since late last year.

interviewed Lu Jie, founder and director of Long March Space, and Mrs. Long Yu, Director of Amelie Gallery.

Gloomy picture?

Can China's contemporary art market survive and even thrive in the global financial crisis? Reactions differ among people in the art sector but some, like Xiao Baozhen, are not optimistic.

interviewed Tony Chang, artistic director of the Amelie Gallery who has no time for self-pity..."Since there's not much we can do to change the macro-economic climate, what needs most attention for an art gallery is to upgrade its business strategies and management status," he declares.

A positive impression

In the dash for cash, many trailblazing Chinese artists are leaving the ancient art form of printmaking in the dust. But Su Xinping, professor of Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), strives to keep this dying medium alive and kicking.

ChinaDaily interviewed prominent artist Su Xinping whose works featured on the New Year Print Art Festival organized by Amelie Gallery.
