Black Artists and Modernism
21st October 2016
Diana Yeh has been invited as a key participant in running a study day on the artist Li Yuan-chia at the Stuart Hall Library, London in November, as a part of the AHRC-funded Black Artists & Modernism (BAM) project. The three-year research project is a collaboration between University of the Arts London and Middlesex University and addresses the understated connections and areas of contention between Black-British artists’ practice and the work of art’s relationship to Modernism. The study day will focus on signature art-works and exhibition histories to examine the impact of Li Yuan-chia’s work on the broader narratives of modern and contemporary art practice.
