Survey of Art in China – Session 5

Event Details

China Art Museum

Art took a turn towards modernism in Shanghai. Why was that historically significant to the city of Shanghai? How did its locality and history attribute to the shifting conditions in society? How did the emergence of the Shanghai School painters disrupt the literati tradition? This fifth session of the Survey of Art in China series, taught by Adjunct Professor of Art History Julie Chun, will take place at the China Art Museum, the largest museum (by square footage) in all of Asia. We will also briefly discuss the history of museum building in China and the curatorial challenges facing Chinese museums.
