Graphic Ideology: Cultural Revolution Propaganda From China
Exhibition focusing on Chinese progranda posters and tactics.
Working closely with UO faculty members and students in the Departments of the History of Art and Architecture, East Asian Languages and Literatures, and History, the JSMA is proud to present a special exhibition of Chinese Cultural Revolution propaganda posters. Drawn from a local private collection of great scope and quality, this installation celebrates the promised gift of a core selection of these historically important and visually compelling works and will provide a focus of study for a number of Fall 2017 classes and public programs.
The exhibition grew out of a cataloguing project and smaller gallery installation undertaken last year by graduate students Kun Xie, Sangah Kim, Allie Mickle, and Esther Weng, and is augmented with further research and analysis by UO China specialists Roy Chan, Jenny Lin, and Ina Asim along with some of their graduate students. The exhibition, catalogue, and programs are made possible with generous support from the WLS Spencer Foundation; the Coeta and Donald Barker Changing Exhibitions Endowment; the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation; the Oregon Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts; a federal agency; JSMA Academic Support grants, and JSMA members.
Our "Finding Solutions" conference focused on the work of individuals, companies, and NGOs addressing some of China’s most pressing challenges. We had a large and diverse audience participate. Videos coming soon!
