Chinese Gardens as Sites for Sighting, Citing, and Inciting
A Virtual Talk by Professor of Art History and Asian Studies Carol Brash

Monday, May 10, 2021 @ 5:00 PM

In this whirlwind tour, Professor Brash will introduce some of the many functions of gardens connected to China ranging in time from the eleventh century to the twenty-first century.  Most of these sites functioned as places that developed, reacted to, and/or challenged aesthetic trends and ways of seeing (sighting).  Gardens, like other forms of art, also served to transmit history, literature, and the arts (citing).  Many of the older gardens also served as a means for the patron to quietly engage in political protest or in some newer gardens to raise awareness of past injustices (inciting).
