Presenting the Sydney Asian Art Series

The Sydney Asian Art Series presents leading international voices on early, modern and contemporary Asian art. This three-year series of talks and events is co-presented by the University of Sydney’s China Studies Centre, The Power Institute, and VisAsia, with support from the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Sydney Ideas.

Originating in and celebrating the very latest and best scholarship in Asian art from around the world, this initiative complements the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ innovative exhibition program in Asian art, and the University of Sydney’s region-leading programs in the arts and cultures of Asia.

Four speakers will be welcomed to Sydney each year to address an annual theme, beginning in 2017 with ‘Beyond the Studio: Contexts for Asian Art’. Join us as we navigate the bustling bookshops of eighteenth-century Edo Japan, explore artistic responses to European prints in nineteenth-century Iran, find the intersections of art and law in contemporary China, and take a critical look at exhibitions and nationalism in contemporary India. Our inaugural season promises provocative ideas and wonderful art, and we look forward to sharing with you the vibrancy of artistic practice across our region.
