Transcript of "Becoming Un-Executed - Harvard - Apri\'10 - v7 - final"

  1. 1. Harvard Association forUS-China RelationsSecond annual symposium: ‘The art of representing China’Trevor H. SimonInvitational lecture: ‘Becoming un-Executed’3rd April 2010_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ABSTRACT: Sociological interpretations of selected Chinese & American modern and contemporary art and theirspiritual utility for the self and societyMaking use of selected Chinese and American modern and contemporary art imagery, Mr Simon will suggest a number ofcomparative interpretations to draw a deeply personal narrative, and will correlate these images with economic, financialand sociological data to posit spiritual linkages between art, finance and the self. Attention will be given to the real worldrelevance of selected imagery as it relates to the healthiness of a society, the conduct of the individual and the implicationsfor the state of trust and fear within the self. It is hoped that this early stage work will enliven the wider debate as to therelevance of art imagery, the risks inherent in any copycatting of American norms in a Chinese context, and the leadershipopportunities arising._____________________________________________________________________________________________________
