Viewing Vietnamese History through Art from Colonialism to the Present

Professor Nora Taylor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

This talk will present a survey of Vietnamese painting from the
establishment of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts d’Indochine in Hanoi in 1925,
through decades of Vietnamese history up to the 21st century. I will
present the work of artists who have made a significant contribution to
the nation’s art history and discuss how historical, political and
social circumstances have shaped artistic practices in that country over
the past 100 years.

Nora Taylor is a Chicago-based art historian of modern and contemporary
Vietnamese art and professor of Southeast Asian Art History at the
School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is author of Painters in
Hanoi (Hawaii 2004 and NUS 2009) as well as numerous articles on
Vietnamese art.
