The Power Institute Australia in partnership with the Art Gallery of New South Wales, is proud to present Tilting the World: Histories of Modern and Contemporary Asian Art. Tilting the World is an ambitious two-day symposium over 29 and 30 November, which will bring to Sydney international experts and emerging scholars to discuss the past, present and future of Asian art. Collectively, this symposium asks: what is at stake in the study of modern and contemporary Asian art cultures today, particularly as we head into what is being styled “the Asian Century”?
This significant event has been organised to honour the career of Professor John Clark, who retires this year from the Department of Art History and Film Studies, The University of Sydney. Reflecting an understanding of the cultural richness and complexity of Asian modernities, the symposium features cross-disciplinary approaches, encompassing art history, sociology, anthropology, media and visual cultural studies, which highlight the layered richness of cultural experience within, between and beyond nations. Keynote speakers who have worked with Professor Clark over the years have been invited to indicate the breadth of his research legacy.
Tilting the World is a FREE event. To register online and view the two-day program, venue information, list of speakers and abstracts, please visit the official symposiums page here:
