In Collaboration With Art In Translation Journal and The Taiwan Academy
Deadline: May 30, 2017

« Art and Translation in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea of Post-China Era » International Symposium

This symposium plans to open up the discussion in art of the Post-China era in relation to both the historical and contemporary contexts of changing geo-political and cultural identities of Asian locales –
Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea in particular, and the relationship of these issues to visual production. In doing so we are patently interested in accounts that connect with the hybridity of artistic creation, critical conversations across boarders and postcolonial theory to critique – and reposition beyond – the use of visuality and cultural translations developed in the regions under Chinese-influence in a global context (including its autonomous regions and Asian counterparts). We strive to understand how Asian art history, aesthetics and practices conform, translate, defy and synthesize as they demarcate what it designates to be modern and contemporary in specific milieus.

This symposium invites contributions researching around arts from Asia between 1900 to the present. We are particularly interested in fresh and ongoing research and would like to invite international scholars, curators, artists and final year PhD. researchers to participate.

Papers will be considered for peer-reviewed publication, to be featured in Art and Translation  (http://www.artintranslation.org) as a special issue in December 2018.

Possible Topics Include, But Are Not Limited To:
– Art and Cultural Translation Across Taiwan/Hong Kong/Korea/Japan/China
– Synthesis, Legitimization and Hybridity
– Rebuilding National Narrative through Visual Art
– Geo-Identities of Trans-national Art
– Sovereignty and Invisibility
– Rethinking Landscape and Cultural Ambience
– Local Colours in Global Context
– Alternative Art Historiographies
