Unfolding A New Chapter of Global Art History: Collecting and Creating Chinese Painting in Modern Epigraphic Movement as Seen in the Dynamics between Singapore and Chinese Art Circles of the 20th Century

It has been a crucial issue for the study of modern art to deal with the parallel between the epigraphic movement in the 19th century China and the “permanent revolution” of the European art of the same time. From a perspective of global art history, the dynamics between Singapore and Chinese art circles since the 20th century has yet been carefully examined. In this public talk, Professor Zaixin Hong will explore the unique geo-cultural position of Singapore in the making of a global market for Chinese painting.

Dr. Hong Zaixin is a Professor of Art History at the University of Puget Sound, USA. His research interest focuses on Song-Yüan (960-1368) and modern Chinese painting. He has published widely on these subjects with an emphasis on global art collecting, including From Private Space to Public Space: Three Essays on Audience of Qian Xuan’s Wang Xizhi Watching Geese in Its Provenance of Seven Centuries (2020), and The Universality of Huang Binhong: An Anthology on Modern Chinese Art Studies, I & II (2022). In addition, he authored an award-winning Chinese college textbook, The History of Chinese Art (2000, 2013 revised and expanded version), and compiled Essays on Chinese painting by overseas scholars (1950-1987) (1992). A 2005-06 ACLS and NEH fellow, he has been working on a new book, Shaking Hands with the Future: The Transformation of Chinese Painting through Overseas Collecting.
