Sydney Asian Art Series 2017

Beyond the studio: contexts for Asian art

The Sydney Asian Art Series presents leading international voices on early, modern and contemporary Asian art. This three-year series of talks and events is co-presented by the University of Sydney’s China Studies Centre, The Power Institute and VisAsia, with support from the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Sydney Ideas.

Four speakers will be welcomed to Sydney in 2017 to address the theme ‘Beyond the studio: contexts for Asian art’.

Join us as we navigate the bustling bookshops of 18th-century Edo Japan, explore artistic responses to European prints in 19th-century Iran, find the intersections of art and law in contemporary China, and take a critical look at exhibitions and nationalism in contemporary India.
