Shifting Forces: Paintings by the Shanghai School

Event Details

  • Date:

We continue the fifth session in the series Survey of Art in China. Through a systematic study, we will explore the socio-economic context in which the content of traditional Chinese painting took a shift toward modernism. This pivotal transition occurred none other than in our very own city of Shanghai. Through this museum talk, Julie Chun (MA, Art History) will highlight the critical features that came to define “modern art” in China and discuss the prominent artists who were responsible for transforming the visual culture of Shanghai.
