Held in conjunction with the exhibition Living With Ink: The Collection of Dr Tan Tsze Chor, this one-day symposium brings together art historians and curators to examine the development and appreciation of Chinese art in networks of overseas Chinese artists and collectors in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Panels explore how visual art can be studied as expressions of identity by overseas Chinese communities in this period, as well as the early collecting of Chinese art and the later consolidation of these collections into museums and other national institutions.
Talks will be in English and Mandarin. Simultaneous translation devices will be available at the registration desk 30 minutes before the programme starts. Registration required through Peatix.
