The Visual Art of China (CHI4496.01)

Ginger Lin

Whether it is the serenity of a classical Chinese landscape, the heroism of a CCP propaganda poster, or the humor of “The history of Chinese painting and the history of modern western art washed in the washing machine for two minutes”, art is always somehow a reflection of the culture. In this class we will explore the ways in which art expresses culture. Each class or every other class, students will be given a packet with visual and written information on a particular work of art with a vocabulary list and grammar points for that material. Students will be expected to prepare to discuss it in Chinese with the teacher and classmates during the next class meeting.
