Keynote Lecture: "In A Time of Earthquakes: Contemporary Chinese Artists Shake the World” by Professor Aihwa Ong

Description

Fri 17 Jun 2016, 7.45 - 9.00 pm
National Gallery Singapore, Auditorium

The rise of China as an economic and a political power has reshaped the global order. At a recent policy forum in Tokyo, Singapore’s Ambassador-at-Large, Bilahari Kausikan, spoke about how Southeast Asian countries must be able to stand up to and get along with China at the same time. Indeed, any appreciation of the geopolitical situation of the region has to consider the presence of Asia’s largest nation and economy. In her keynote lecture, Professor Aihwa Ong speaks about how the emergence of Chinese contemporary art is also reshaping a global cultural order, and discusses the ramifications for Southeast Asian artists and their societies.
