East Asia by the Book! CEAS Author Talks ft. Peggy Wang
"The Future History of Contemporary Chinese Art"

During the 1980s and 1990s, a group of Chinese artists (Zhang Xiaogang, Wang Guangyi, Sui Jianguo, Zhang Peili, and Lin Tianmiao) ascended to new heights of international renown. Professor Wang offers a corrective to previous appraisals, demonstrating how their works address fundamental questions about the forms, meanings, and possibilities of art. This book focuses on methods of interpretation and narratives of agency, and speaks to Professor Wang's inquiries into what it means for histories of contemporary art—and Art History more generally—to be inclusive.

Peggy Wang is Associate Professor of Art History and Asian Studies at Bowdoin College. Professor Wang teaches the span of Asian art history, from the pre-modern to the contemporary era. Her research explores how meanings and histories are constructed in light of cultural globalization.

Initiated in 2016, this annual series showcases CEAS faculty, alumni, and special guests who provide author talks and book launches as a way to engage the broader community in conversations regarding key scholarship on East Asia.

This event is co-sponsored with the Seminary Co-op Bookstores.
