Lecture: A Closer Look at Contemporary Chinese Art
6:30 PM on Wednesday Mar. 27th, 2019

During the last four decades, contemporary Chinese art has become increasingly prominent on the international stage. Despite a series of high-profile exhibitions worldwide since the late 1980s and the international fame of the artist Ai Weiwei, the varied significances of contemporary Chinese art nevertheless remain largely obscure to audiences outside China.

Join us for a free lecture by the award-winning cultural historian and critic Paul Gladston, who will discuss contemporary Chinese art from differing international and localized Chinese perspectives.

Presented in partnership with the School for Studies in Art and Culture and the Centre for Transnational Analysis at Carleton University, and the UNSW Sydney (the University of New South Wales).
