Contemporary Asian Art Lecture Series: China
Eliot Kiang is a Chinese artist who lived in China from 2001-2007. His talk will focus on projects that emphasize Chinese contemporary art.
Eliot Kiang is the owner of the Morono Kiang Gallery, a contemporary art gallery located in the historic Bradbury Building. Kiang lived in Beijing from 2001-2007, and was active in the Chinese contemporary art movement.
Kiang's Beijing-based projects included art publication design, the coordination of exhibitions and programs such as Mayor Villaraigosa's Beijing visit. Upon his return, he opened Morono Kiang Gallery in 2007. Since then, it has showcased projects from around the globe with an emphasis on Chinese contemporary art.
Kirk Denton will look at the role of politics—especially political parties—in the establishment, administration, architectural design, and historical narratives of museums in Taiwan.
Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a discussion with Barry Naughton on his assessment of what he and his colleagues got right and wrong in looking at China’s economy over the past four decades.
