The Confucius Institute at U-M presents: On the Borders of Art


A CI-UM Distinguished Lecture by Pan Gongkai (潘公凯)
Contemporary artist, art historian, and president of the Central Academy of Fine Arts

Tuesday, March 8, 2011 | 4PM
Pendleton Room, Michigan Union
Free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

Renowned Chinese artist Pan Gongkai will reflect upon the borders constructed for art by nations, critics, and individuals. Rather than reify those borders, Dr. Pan will reflect upon their shifting shapes through the prism of “misstructure,” a critical concept he has developed in numerous publications over the past decade. UM audiences will be the first to hear Dr. Pan discuss his theories in North America, in sequential translation. Don’t miss this rare opportunity.
