Asian Art Association Wed @ Noon: Plants in Chinese Art

China has a very large number of native plants but only a limited number of these plants appear in traditional Chinese art. The conventions for including plants in traditional Chinese art were very different from the conventions of traditional European art. The symbolism the viewer is expected to understand when viewing plants in Chinese art is not the same as that of the same plant in a European or American painting. In addition, an aide to dating art pieces emerges as more recent Chinese art uses more diverse plants. Examples will be drawn from the DAM’s collection by The Wandering Botanist, Kathleen Keeler.

Film Premier: China's Great History as it is Told by Two 18th Century Screens

Free admission with reservation required by Nov 4.

5:00-6:00PM cocktail hour in Sharp Lobby - Hamilton Building

6:00-7:30PM documentary screening/ Q & A in Sharp Auditorium

7:30-8:30PM light reception

Explore China’s past dynasties as it is revealed in two 18th century painted folding screens. Each was a major workshop commission, being painted with lacquer on lacquer, an extremely difficult artistic technique. As their stories are revealed in this premier viewing of a 45 minute educational documentary, the hidden messages and ancient techniques used to create these beautiful works of art are revived. It has taken a team of collectors, expert researchers, translators and historians working together for several years to uncover some of their mysteries. Presented by lacquer specialist and documentarian, Carla Stansifer, formerly of the Denver Art Museum, and Cassandra Lohr of China Art Search, LLC.

Portraiture was an important art form in the Spanish colony of New Spain (Mexico) and in the British colonies of North America. Today, details in portraits – such as clothing, jewelry, and decorative arts – often reveal clues to the lives of both artists and sitters. At the symposium, scholars from both fields of study will present tandem talks addressing the evolution of portraiture as well as the similarities and differences in the colonial experience of the two regions.

The Art of Remembrance: 150 Years since Sand Creek

Join us for this half-day symposium and hear five Cheyenne and Arapaho artists discuss their art reflecting on the Sand Creek Massacre. The massacre occurred on November 29, 1864 in southeastern Colorado, when a U.S. volunteer cavalry of about 675 men attacked a peaceful Cheyenne and Arapaho village, killing nearly 200 people, mostly women, children, and the elderly. This event has had a lasting effect on the Cheyenne and Arapaho peoples; the symposium speakers will discuss these impacts and their work that examines Cheyenne and Arapaho life before, during, and after the massacre.

 

Participating artists include Brent Learned, George Levi, Nathan Hart, Merlin Little Thunder, and B.J. Stepp. A pop-up exhibition of the artists’ work will follow the symposium, running November 8 – December 3, 2014 in the North building level-3.
