Goldberg Gives Talk in Tennessee

Posted December 8, 2009
Tags Art History Faculty
Associate Professor of Art History Stephen J. Goldberg delivered a lecture titled “At Utopia’s Edge: From Social Realism to Socialist Realism in China and North Korea,” on Dec. 4 at Sewanee: The University of the South, in Sewanee, Tenn. This visual presentation traced the development of the art of socialist realism in the People’s Republic of China from its origins in the social realism of the modern woodcut movement.

The modern woodcut movement is a socially consequential popular form of visual art fostered by Lu Xun (1881-1936), a social critic, intellectual and leading figure in the May Fourth Literary Movement. This provided an interpretive context within which to begin to assess the 24 North Korean woodblock prints in the exhibition: North Korean Images at Utopia’s Edge, in the art gallery at Sewanee: The University of the South.
