China Transformed: Artscape/Cityscape

In this two-day international symposium, leading curators, critics and scholars will look at artists working in different mediums as they react to the new Chinese megacity.

October 17, 2008 12:00am to October 18, 2008 12:00am

China is the epicenter of rapid urbanization, provoking responses from artists, photographers, and filmmakers whose focus ranges from optimistic expansiveness to radical dislocation.

The keynote speaker will be the international authority on classical and contemporary Chinese art Wu Hung. Other participants include Julia Andrews, Hou Hanru, Wendy Larson, William Schaefer, Kiuyi Shen, Jerome Silbergeld, Pauline Yao, and Zheng Shengtian.
