Two students will form a group to prepare a Powerpoint guided tour of a ‘Virtual Exhibition’ on contemporary Chinese ink paintings, engaging with issues of what make art ‘modern’, ‘global, and ‘Chinese’. You are welcome to choose artists featured in our library’s exhibition. You could put up a solo exhibition on a single artist’s work, or choose works from a number of artists around a selected theme. You are requested to have consultations with me and submit a presentation outline at least one week before presentation.
