Art History Class: Contemporary Chinese Art says
This class has two tracks. Sign-up for two Saturdays, July 16 + 23, or two Wednesdays, July 13 + 20. Both sessions meet in the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

This two week class explores the major trends, artists, and movements that together form the history of contemporary Chinese art since the late 1970s. In response to Carnegie Museum of Art's exhibition of Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads on view in the Hall of Architecture this summer, the class is organized around a major moment in the life of the artist: his return to Beijing after living in New York City for twelve years. The biography and work of Ai Weiwei are used not as the sole representative of contemporary Chinese art as a whole, but as a catalyst to explore the complex institutional, political, creative, and economic networks that have sustained its development over the last 35 years.
