Symposium: "Chinese Landscapes: Explorations in Literature, Poetry, Film, and the Visual Arts"

Historically one of the most prominent artistic subjects in China, landscape painting has often evolved in tandem with the social and political changes experienced by Chinese artists. In conjunction with theWithin and Without: Transformations in Chinese Landscapes exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center, this symposium will use the landscape tradition in the visual arts as a springboard to discuss larger, interdisciplinary issues surrounding Chinese art, literature, history, economy, and culture during the last one thousand years, with an emphasis on the modern and contemporary periods. Leading artists and scholars in various fields will deliver their presentations. No registration required.
