NELSON I. WU MEMORIAL LECTURE, Chinese Cosmopolitans in Twentieth Century Shanghai

NELSON I. WU MEMORIAL LECTURE ON ASIAN ART AND CULTURE
Chinese Cosmopolitans in Twentieth Century Shanghai
Julia F. Andrews, Professor, Department of the History of Art, Ohio State University
Friday, November 16, 7 pm
The Farrell Auditorium, Free

This lecture will consider how the approach of the Pegasus Society in its decade of activity (1919-1928) and its impact on the subsequent generation of Chinese artists yielded a distinctive artistic culture in the Shanghai-Hangzhou region. Their attitudes toward cosmopolitan modernity may defy our standard assumptions and set the stage for more pluralistic definitions of contemporaneity in Chinese art.

Co-presented with East Asian Studies, Washington University in St. Louis.
