Public Lecture: Does "Islamic Art" Exist in East Asia?

Release time:2018-03-16 11:30:56

Speaker:Dr. Yuka Kadoi

Date: 22 March 2018, Thursday

Time: 4:30pm-6pm

Venue: G24, Fung King Hey Building, CUHK

About the Lecture:

This lecture sheds new light on the peripheral style of Muslim material culture that evolved in East Asia. By reconsidering the art-historiographical debate on this style - which tends to be viewed as neither typically Islamic nor Chinese - this lecture addresses various methodological and disciplinary challenges when it comes to the study of Islamic art as a history of Asian art.
