CONFERENCE: How have Chinese paintings been made? What practical, material and other considerations have governed their original appearance and subsequent conditions? How have they been re-made, unmade and used over time?

These questions lie behind much critical study in recent years, demonstrating the relevance of Chinese painting to ‘the material turn’ in the wider humanities.

This two day international conference explores the materials and materiality of paintings created by artists in China from the 8th century to the present day. It invites researchers from broad areas of expertise to consider Chinese paintings and their constituent materials, and to discuss how their techniques relate to their meaning.

£25, £20 concessions, £10 students (per day)

Thursday 5 & Friday 6 December, 10.00-17.30

This conference is supported by the Bei Shan Tang Foundation (北山堂基金) and The Sir Percival David Foundation Trust
