This course examines the history of Chinese art and visual culture from the (early) modern to the contemporary period, both within China and internationally. From the Qing empire through the Opium wars and foreign treaty ports, to the Chinese revolution(s) and the Maoist and post-Maoist era, the course explores how Chinese artists appropriated media and artistic styles from elsewhere (copperplate, oil painting, photography, socialist realism, German expressionism, Pop) and how Chinese art and visual culture spread across the globe from Chinoiserie to the global art market of the late twentieth century. Throughout the course questions about modernity, modernism, and contemporaneity and about the "Chinese-ness" of Chinese art in a globalizing world will be foregrounded.
