Ishibashi International Symposium

Modern Japanese Art and China

University of California, San Diego, November 2-4, 2018

This symposium focused on Sino-Japanese cultural interchange, exploring, in particular, the ways in which it played a role in the development of modern Japanese art, ca. 1860s-1950s. We believe that the topic is important for Japanese and Chinese art histories, but, more broadly, for studies concerning cross-cultural connections in East Asia and the World. Participants, altogether sixteen, were from various places in Asia, Europe, and North America. They were chiefly art historians, some primarily focusing on Japan and others on China, but also included a historian and a literary scholar, specializing in Sino-Japanese exchange. For those interested in the topic, this site offers the symposium abstract, program and presentation abstracts, in English, Japanese, and Chinese.

 

This symposium was organized by Tamaki Maeda, in collaboration with Joshua Fogel, and was sponsored by Kuiyi Shen and the Department of Visual Art, UCSD. This project was made possible by a generous grant from the Ishibashi Foundation.
