Chinese Folk Pottery Symposium
This symposium will address the presence of Chinese folk pottery in the modern worldâ??its traditions, its methods, its practitioners, and its future. Through the presentation of lectures and films, two distinguished Chinese ceramic artists and a scholar of Chinese art and archeology will offer their knowledge and views of the field, informing our understanding of the role of Chinese folk pottery in historical and contemporary contexts. The Symposium intends to promote a fuller interpretation of this work and a deeper comprehension of its origins, processes, and influences. The symposium and film coincides with the special presentation of the Chinese Folk Pottery: The Art of the Everyday in the Shirley Chang Gallery of Asian Art.
This presentation is sponsored by the Confucius Institute at U-M, Hsu Arts Beijing, Center for Chinese Studies at U-M, and UMMA.
