Abstract

This talk will delve into Lin Fengmian’s paintings, which were the product of years of artistic experimentation and cross-cultural exchange. These works are more than imitations of other styles; they entail intricate processes of resistance and appropriation that bring about a significant transformation of techniques and aesthetic philosophy. By examining some of the artist’s key works, we can gain a deeper understanding of the complex nature of cross-cultural encounters and appreciate twentieth-century Chinese art in its own distinct context.

 


Speaker

Sandy Ng | Assistant Professor of Culture and Theory | Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Sandy Ng received her PhD from SOAS (University of London). Her earlier publications have examined concepts of hybrid modernism in Lin Fengmian’s figurative paintings, and her most recent research focuses on gender issues in design, modernity and self-fashioning. She was a Visiting Fellow at the Bard Graduate Centre (USA) where she organised a symposium entitled Material Culture and Design in Modern Asia, and she is currently working on an edited volume based on the symposium.
