INSIGHTS INTO CHINA’S ART, CULTURE AND HISTORY AT TE PAPA
Leading curators, historians and other experts will present insights into China’s art, culture and history at Te Papa, on 15 May 2014. This gathering promises to bring together leaders in their fields, along with members of the public, for fascinating commentary and discussion focusing on China’s unique qualities and international impact.
The symposium is timed to coincide with the exhibitions from China; Throne of Emperors and Shi Lu: A revolution in paint. Te Papa curators will be walking participants through the shows before Dr Claire Roberts presents her keynote speech, focusing on the paintings in each one. Dr Roberts will look in particular at the art of Shi Lu, and what it tells us about the life of this 20th century master of Chinese painting, as well as a turbulent time in his nation’s history.
