Speaker: Tiffany Beres

 

What is “Chinese” photography? China boasts a history of art stretching over five thousand years, which embraces a vast array of forms, from carved jade stones to ink paintings on silk or paper. The Chinese experience of photography also stands apart from that of other countries. Since the introduction of the photographic medium to China in the late 1840s, Chinese photographers have adapted this foreign technology and grafted it onto more traditional Chinese forms of artistic expression. Ms. Beres will present an introduction to the history of Chinese photography, focusing on the innovations of the early Chinese photographer Lang Jingshan and introducing eight contemporary neo-traditionalist artists explore the possibility of transformation of the Chinese aesthetic tradition within a postmodern context. The lecture follows a recent exhibition at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in San Diego, curated by Ms. Beres.
