  • The Print Medium at the Origin of China‘s New Art
    Seminar on Friday, December 4, 10 - 12 am, Seminar Room 002, 2 - 4 pm, Seminar Room 016

While the talk focuses on the early days of highly politicized woodblock print art in the late republican era, the seminar will further develop the theme into the early years of the Peoples Republic of China and the mediums impact on artistic practices after 1949.
