Description

GUEST LECTURE: JOAN KEE | MINIMALISM IN ASIA MAJOR

Despite the significant role that Asian artists and Asia played in contemporary art, nearly every discussion of Minimalism fails to account for this. This lecture by art historian Joan Kee offers a maverick view of Minimalism, addressing how and why Asia and Asian artists mattered in relation to one of the most important art movements in the 20th century, as well as how contemporary art can be a fluid geography of imagination.

Made possible with the support of the U.S. Embassy of Singapore.




ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Dr Joan Kee is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan. She is a leading scholar on contemporary Asian art history and researches on modern and contemporary art from multiregional and cross-disciplinary perspectives. Her books include Contemporary Korean Art: Tansaekhwa and the Urgency of Method, which helped spark global interest in Tansaekhwa, an approach to abstraction often compared to Minimalism, and Models of Integrity: Art and Law in Post-Sixties America. She is also contributing editor to Artforum and on several scholarly and advisory boards in the United States, Europe and Asia
