For art to bridge cultural divides, it must first be able to move from side to side freely (or at least affordably). But around six years after the US launched a trade war with China, tariffs on art and antiquities have aggressively restrained sales, exhibitions and cultural interchanges between the two superpowers, according to art professionals in both nations.

“US collecting and/or investment (as an asset class) in contemporary Chinese works of art has slowed to a trickle—a mere fraction of what it was pre-tariffs,” says Fritz Dietl, the president and founder of art handler Dietl International. He also cites the sharp decline in stateside exhibitions of Chinese contemporary art since the duties’ implementation as discouraging evidence. “The issue goes both ways”, he adds. “US gallery participation at major art fairs in China is way down, and far fewer exhibitions of art from the US are staged in Chinese museums.”
