HESCAH Talk: Women Artists in 20th-Century China: A prehistory of the Contemporary
February 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
This talk will reflect on two intersecting themes, the rise of women as artists and as female subjects for art, in the context of the evolving status of women in twentieth-century China. Against the backdrop of the nascent modern education for women and the emergence of feminism between 1910 and 1940, it interrogates, in light of contemporary art world patterns and current definitions of feminism, the slowing and even regression in recognition of women as artists in subsequent years. Reception to follow.
