Educational Work Shop on Art Theory Is Now Recruiting

June 22, 2016 Liu Haisu Art Museum 

Art and Society in the Late 1990s in France

The second phase of Liu Haisu Art Museum Art Theory Work Shop themed on "Art and society in the late 1990s in France: The relationship among Edouard Manet, Impressionism and Bourgeois culture" is now recruiting and open for applications.     


The Workshop Overview

Through the analysis of the rise of Edouard Manet and Impressionism, the workshop will discuss the relationship between French art and society in the late 1990s, especially the relationship among Edouard Manet, Impressionism and Bourgeois culture. Although the huge changes undergoing in French and Paris are often mentioned in the same breath with the rise of modern art (since the rise of Impressionism), it is hard to make clear the relationship between French art and society in the late 1990s. The workshop will start from analyzing the new art creation space resulting from the changes of art creation mechanism and the emergence of art criticism and painting market. The Bohémien and artists' life will also be discussed to figure out how they balanced between fashion and market in their creation so as to resist and need the social upper class "Bourgeois" at the same time. Finally the workshop will illustrate how Edouard Manet started this symbolic modern art revolution.
