Chinese-Language Tour: Deciphering Human Forms

Friday, April 30, 2021 | 8:00 PM

Virtual Event

The concept of likeness plays a central role in Eastern and Western figurative art traditions. Some artists, however, render human forms through distortion, simplification, or other modification, pursuing goals other than mimetic representation. In this Zoom tour, Yue Dai, doctoral student in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, will discuss several artworks in the Kemper Art Museum collection from different geographic locations and historical moments that feature a variety of depictions of human forms.

This hour-long tour in Chinese is free, but registration is required. Register here >>

Support for this program is provided by Women and the Kemper.
