ASIA 358 - Seminar in Asian Art

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)

(Same as ART 358 ) Topics vary each year.

Topic for 2017/18a: Art in China from 1900 to Today: Vision, Politics, and Globalism. This seminar offers an in-depth investigation of art in China from the early twentieth century to the present. We discuss a vast array of artistic media, from painting, printmaking, and sculpture, to popular imagery, photography, film, fashion, architecture and urban space. The course emphasizes careful visual analysis, supplemented by readings that examine the evolving circumstances in which artists in modern China have created their works. Issues we confront in the seminar include art’s role as an instrument of political authority, opposition, and subversion; artists’ experiments with technology and new media; and the rise of Chinese art as a global phenomenon, with attention to the complex and divergent realities of today’s China as envisioned by artists in the twenty-first century.
