Yeewan Koon
Yeewan Koon is Associate Professor at the University of Hong Kong. Her primary research area is Ming and Qing paintings, with a secondary interest in modern and contemporary art in Hong Kong. Her book A Defiant Brush: Su Renshan and the Politics of Painting in Guangdong (Hong Kong: Hong Kong University Press, 2013) examines how an iconoclastic painter responded to the violence of the Opium War (1839–1842) by creating paintings that declared Confucius the bringer of chaos and questioned the authority of scholar-officials at this crucial moment. She is currently working on a new book project on export art and the construction of “Canton” as a conceit of global trade and local production. In 2014, Koon was the guest curator of It Begins with Metamorphosis: Xu Bing, the first major solo exhibition of the artist in Hong Kong. She has also penned numerous art reviews and critical essays for local publications.
