Arts of Asia lecture series 2011

Innovasian: Asian art 1960s to now

In the past fifty years of accelerating change in Asian societies the relationship of artists with their cultural past has been at times re-invented and extended, at others, subverted or rejected, resulting in a vibrant range of individual imagery and styles. This course investigates innovation and transformation across traditional Asian art forms, contemporary art movements and individual practice throughout the region. Each lecture presents the broader socio-political context for a specific movement or artist, as well as cultural highlights of the period and reception of the work, both locally and globally.
