UCLA CCS 2018 Fall Quarter Events Overview


Talk with Barbara Pollack | Brand New Art from China

Wednesday, October 03, 2018
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Damoka, 1424 Westwood Blvd

Barbara Pollack, journalist and art critic

A visionary generation of young Chinese artists are coming to prominence in the art world – just as China cements its place as the second largest art market on the planet. Building on the new frontiers opened up by the Chinese artists of the late 1980s and 1990s, artists such as Ai Wei Wei who came to the West and became household names, this new generation are provocative, exciting and bold. But what does it mean to be a Chinese artist today? And how can we better understand their work?

Here, Barbara Pollack tells the story of how these Chinese millennials, fast becoming global art superstars, negotiate their cultural heritage, and what this means for China’s impact on the future of global culture. Many young Chinese artists have declared they are “not Chinese, but global” – Pollack investigates just what that means for China, the art market, and the world.

Barbara Pollack is an award-winning journalist, art critic, and curator who is one of the world’s leading authorities on contemporary Chinese art. Pollack’s writing has appeared in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Village Voice, Departures, Artnews, Art and Auction and Art in America, among many others. She has also written several ground-breaking monographs on young Chinese artists, including the first published artist profile of Ai Weiwei for Artnews in 2005.

Reception with light refreshments to follow. Attendees are invited to bring their own copies of the book for Barbara Pollack to sign.

 

UCLA CCS 2018 Fall Quarter Events Overview


The Politics of Rights and the 1911 Revolution of China

Thursday, October 04, 2018
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Bunche Hall 10383

Xiaowei Zheng, UCSB

China's 1911 Revolution was a momentous political transformation. Its leaders, however, were not rebellious troublemakers on the periphery of imperial order. On the contrary, they were a powerful political and economic elite deeply entrenched in local society and well-respected both for their imperially sanctioned cultural credentials and for their mastery of new ideas. The revolution they spearheaded produced a new, democratic political culture that enshrined national sovereignty, constitutionalism, and the rights of the people as indisputable principles.

Based upon previously untapped Qing and Republican sources, The Politics of Rights and the 1911 Revolution in China is a nuanced and colorful chronicle of the revolution as it occurred in local and regional areas. Xiaowei Zheng explores the ideas that motivated the revolution, the popularization of those ideas, and their animating impact on the Chinese people at large. The focus of the book is not on the success or failure of the revolution, but rather on the transformative effect that revolution has on people and what they learn from it.

Xiaowei Zheng is an Assistant Professor of History and East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research interests include local history of the Qing dynasty and early republican political culture, with a focus on the emergence of popular nationalism and the potential of republicanism.
