Abstract

Through the process of "being" discovered in the modern art field by Chinese-American academician Chu Teh-chun, this paper finds that the development of modern Chinese art presents a different orientation from the Western "aesthetic autonomy": at the level of reception, the art field is influenced by the political and economic fields; in terms of artistic creation, Chu Teh-chun insists on the "fusion of East and West" and resolves the contradiction between the "aesthetic autonomy" and the social contextualization of Western art sociology in a transcendent way. In his artistic creation, Chu Teh-chun insists on the idea of "integration of East and West", resolving the contradiction between "aesthetic self-discipline" and social contextualization in Western art sociology in a transcendent way. The complete and independent personality of Chinese artists makes the art field different from the traditional art field: Chinese artists still influence the development of the art field in a two-way interaction through the use of unique mediators.
