2023 NCKU On Line Art Talk
Topic / Dis-/Continuing Traditions: Intertextual Translations between the Visual
Cultures of China and Europe since the 17th Century
Speaker / Professor Paul GLADSTON
Time / 2023.05.16 Tue. 19:00
*The lecture will be hosted online via Webex.
Professor Paul GLADSTON will critically examine intertextual translations between the visual cultures of China and Europe since the 17th century - including in the fields of garden design, architecture and painting. It will be argued that the emergence of a recognisably modern and contemporary art in the Sinosphere is the product of continuing transcultural relays that dis-/continue - uphold and productively disrupt - localized Chinese and European cultural traditions and identities.
