Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art is honored to have invited Professor Chiang Hsun, a renowned Taiwanese writer, poet and painter, to give a lecture entitled “The Awakening of the Body” at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver on August 30th, Thursday, at 7pm.

Professor Chiang Hsun was born in China’s ancient capital Xi’an in 1947 and graduated from the Department of History and the Graduate Institute of Arts at the Chinese Culture University. He also obtained a degree from the Graduate School of Arts at the Université de Paris in 1976. He was the former editor-in-chief of the monthly magazine Lion Art and has taught at the National Taiwan University, Chinese Culture University, and Fu Jen Catholic University. He was Chairman of the Department of Fine Arts at Tunghai University, Taiwan for seven years, and was a resident artist at the National Sun Yat-sen University and the National Chengchi University.
