Introduction to Calligraphy and Ink Painting with Julie Chun
Time & Location
About the Event
Led by Julie Chun (Adjunct Professor of Art History), we will explore the social context in which calligraphy and ink painting emerged in China. Why is calligraphy one of the highest and the most esteemed arts in China? Was it always a critically elevated form of art? As we attempt to remove some layers of mystique, the findings will astound and bemuse you. Regarding ink painting, which emerged first - landscape scenes or figurative elements? Which took earlier precedence - ink washes in color or monochrome? This concentrated museum talk will provide an accessible introduction to the vast and highly important art historical field of study where many answers (as well as more questions) will arise to reveal a fascinating and insightful glimpse into China’s intriguing past that continues to inform the present.
