Join the Society for Asian Art at the home of Fr. Richard Fabian to study how to look, how to “see", how to contextualize, and how to cultivate an attentive mind, so the painting reaches us with maximum impact aesthetically, emotionally, and intellectually.
In conjunction with the exhibition Chinese Ceramics from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), a series of programs and workshops will be offered from February through July at the Vincent Price Art Museum, East Los Angeles Library, and Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library.
This panel discussion with Lydia Liu and Rebecca Karl, co-authors and co-translators, will focus on their book, The Birth of Chinese Feminism: Essential Texts in Transnational Theory, a volume of English translation of writings by possibly the first Chinese feminist author He-Yin Zhen (1884-1920?) on issues of gender in relation to imperialism, capitalism, and patriarchy.
This talk will cover the evolution of the image of female stars from the 1920s to the early 1950s as reflected in their representation as "cover girls" from the 1920s (and the birth of Chinese movie "goddesses") to their makeover after the Communist victory in 1949. The talk will include many slides of images from the Fonoroff Collection, now held at the C.V. Starr East Asian Library.
The UC Berkeley Institute of East Asian Studies will host a panel of political science and economics scholars to discuss the "One Belt, One Road" plan, its goals, and its potential effects with delegates from the Consulate General of the PRC - SF.
This talk draws contrasts and similarities between the periods of Hu-Wen era and the Xi era through the prism of journalist-state relations.
