Public Lecture: Continual Experimentation in Modern Chinese Printmaking
17 May 2011
When modern Chinese art and literature emerged in the first half of the twentieth century, it was the modern woodcut movement that thrived in China in the 1930s that was one of the consequential expressions of the avant-garde. In his presentation for Sydney Ideas Xiaobing Tang will discuss the logic of experimentation at different stages in the development of modern Chinese printmaking.
Professor Tang Xiaobing is the Helmut F. Stern Professor of Modern Chinese Studies and Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan. Professor Tang's work focuses on twentieth-century Chinese literature and engages a wide range of genres, periods, and theories.
