ART 128 - Modern and Contemporary Asian Art


This course provides students with a general introduction to the arts of Asia from the 19th century to the present, with a special focus on China, India, Japan and Korea. We will consider such topics as the conceptual development of an “Asian modern” in a colonial context, the problem of an “authentic” modern and contemporary Asian art, the politics of identity and nationalism as reflected in representations, environmental justice enacted through the arts, and narratives of the transnational contemporary artist in the global context.
