GTL News - Exhibit

Quan jia fu 全家福 (Family Happiness), by Pan Xiaoling.
 
Peasantry, Painting, and Propaganda
 
A new exhibition is on view in the lobby of the Gannett-Tripp Library which explores the history of modern China through the tumultuous and sometimes violent history surrounding Chinese peasant painters. This history is infused with layered tensions over such fundamental questions as: What constitutes an artist? What is the relationship between art and politics? What defines originality? What does it mean when art is commodified?  Works by the peasant painter Pan Xiaoling are featured, along with traditional papercut art and objects associated with Mao Zedong and Chinese communism.  There's also a "hidden symbols" interactive game.  The exhibition was planned, developed, and executed by the students of Introduction to Museum Studies, taught by Dr. Mark Pitner during Term III, 2017.  It will only be on view through Friday, May 26.
