Interim Meeting I

Lyricism of the Times: "Crescent" Lecture and Forum Series I

“Lyricism of the Times: 'Crescent' Lecture and Forum Series” is a series of public and educational programs to take place during the exhibition period of the exhibition, Crescent: Retrospectives of Zhao Wenliang and Yang Yushu. Based on the curatorial statement addressing the characteristics of “lyricism” and “aestheticism” of fine arts practice during the socialist period, this series of public programs invite researchers and practitioners from the field of art and literature to share their research on aesthetics, art history, and contemporary cultural studies in their respective fields. By investigating and sharing the formation of the dominant aesthetic and artistic framework, the process of its dissipation and the cracks and gaps that arise in the process, we hope to explore the interactions between the authoritative framework and the creative consciousness of art practitioners, so as to understand how and to what extent such interactions were adhered and embedded into the times. The work of these researchers and artists is based on their studies on the ideological trends and changing discourses in the Republic of China, the socialist period, and the post-socialist period, which will inspire us to carefully explore our relationship with the past and present from the multidimensional perspectives of individualism, ideology, and archeology. 

Lyricism of the Times: "Crescent" Lecture and Forum Series (1) is the first edition of our project “Interim Meeting”. Please stay tuned for upcoming programs.
