Art History From Home:
Asian American Perspectives

Thurs, Dec 2, 2021
12 pm

Online, via Zoom

This series of online talks asks the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows to highlight select works in the Museum’s collection to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat for a fifteen-minute Q&A following the talk. Sessions are available live only, but topics and speakers do periodically repeat. Check our event calendar for more sessions added regularly.

Xin Wang is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney and a Ph.D. candidate in modern and contemporary art at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, focusing on Soviet hauntology in postmodernism. She has curated and lectured widely in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Her latest writings have appeared in Art in America, Art Agenda, and Mousse. She is currently planning an exhibition that explores extra-human perspectives on survival and entropy in the anthropocene for summer 2022.
