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.
