2013 Summer Institute, "East is East, West is West? Cultural Encounter and Exchange in Art"
University of Colorado at Boulder, June 24-27, 2013
The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) at the
University of Colorado invites applications from middle and high school
teachers of social studies, language arts, and art. The program is open
to teachers nationwide with 10 spaces reserved for teachers in the
eight-state region served by the NCTA National Coordinating Site at the
Program for Teaching East Asia (TEA), University of Colorado: Arizona,
Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming.
Overview: The arrival of Western powers in East Asia in the 1500s began a process of encounter and exchange that has had profound and continuing effects on every aspect of Japanese and Chinese culture, including the arts. At the same time, the exportation and absorption of art from China and Japan to new markets in Europe and the United States also influenced Western visual expression. This seminar will explore the effects, as evidenced in visual culture, of China's and Japan's cross-cultural encounters with Western countries, starting with the arrival of the Jesuits in China and Japan in the mid-sixteenth century, continuing through the "opening" of China and Japan in the mid-nineteenth century, to the present. We will examine works through which artists on all sides recorded the impact of these encounters as we consider cultural transmission and appropriation.
