Chinese Object Study Workshops is a pilot program that will provide graduate students in Chinese art history with an immersive experience in the study of objects—in particular, those belonging to the great collections of Chinese art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery (Freer|Sackler).
There will be two workshops in 2013:
Chinese Bronzes, June 3–7, 2013, Freer|Sackler Galleries, Smithsonian Institution
Writing and Chinese Art, August 26–30, 2013, Metropolitan Museum of Art
Workshop members will spend the week engaged in intensive object study, discussion, and research with a small group of other graduate students, two faculty members, and curators and conservators from the host museum.
The program is open to students enrolled in a graduate art history program at a North American university and pursuing a doctoral degree in Chinese art. Applicants may be of any nationality and may apply for more than one workshop. Transportation, lodging, and some meal support will be provided.
For detailed information about workshop descriptions and application instructions, please see www.asia.si.edu/research/workshops/chinese-object-study.asp
The application deadline is January 4, 2013, with decisions announced by February 1, 2013.
