Yishu Managing Editor Zheng Shengtian to Participate in CONVERSATIONS@PAM on February 7th, 7pm

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

The USC Pacific Asia Museum is pleased to present its inaugural event for CONVERSATIONS@PAM, a panel discussion featuring speakers Professor Richard Strassberg, Dr. Christina Yu and Zheng Shengtian. The museum’s current exhibition, The First Wave: Modern and Contemporary Chinese Paintings, in the USC Pacific Asia Museum Collection is curated by Richard Strassberg, then adjunct curator of Chinese art at the Pacific Asia Museum, who played a critical role in taking contemporary paintings out of China at a time of great political unrest. These works now form part of the museum’s permanent collection. Joining the panel are Zheng Shengtian, Chinese scholar, artist and independent curator who was also deeply involved in the conception of these exhibitions, and Director of the USC Pacific Asia Museum Christina Yu Yu, Ph.D., an expert in contemporary Chinese art. Special thanks to the USC Pacific Asia Museum’s Chinese Arts Council for their support of this program.
