Talk by AAA Researcher Anthony Yung for Teaching Labs.

How does art reflect and respond to social transformation? The 1980s was an important period in the establishment of today’s China, where changing ideologies led to shifts in social and cultural values and expressions. Through the lens of art, the talk explores crucial issues that transform society and perspectives, while coming to a better understanding of current conditions and future possibilities for China.

The talk also introduces Materials of the Future: Documenting Contemporary Chinese Art from 1980–1990, an archiving project that documents a key period of Chinese art history. Participants will break into discussion groups to consider ways of applying these materials in a classroom setting.

A guided tour for educators around AAA Library to follow.

Target: Teachers of all curricula and disciplines are welcome. The talk is also open to students and the public. No prior knowledge of art is required.
Quota: 60
Fee: Free
