Survey of Art in China – Session 2 Understanding Ancient Bronzes

Event Details

In our second session, Julie Chun, adjunct professor of art history, will take us through the bronze gallery and discuss China’s bronze culture. The Shanghai Museum presents pristinely showcased examples of bronze artifacts and Julie will fill us in on the details regarding why so many “food and drinking vessels” (especially when they weren’t used for daily purposes) were created in China’s early civilization. As she takes us through the gallery, we will discuss the production process and the socio-political circumstances in which China’s bronze culture emerged, and why it eventually declined.
