China exported immense quantities of art across the globe in the
early modern era, which made Chinese art highly influential in
international design trends. The 2024 Templeton Colloquium
in Art History will explore the influence of Chinese art and
aesthetics on European and East Asian societies. Chinese
art brought cultures into contact with each other, created
increased awareness of geographically distant societies, and
shaped modern tastes in art.
The 2024 Templeton Colloquium in Art History will be held at
the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art on
Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. with a reception to
Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, Old Davis Road, Davis, California
The evolution of the art trade from the 1950s onward will be
discussed. Intended especially for students who will become the
museum professionals, art advisors and private collectors of
tomorrow, the talk will cover how the fine arts interact
with money, museums and the marketplace in a variety of ways.
History, prestige, family crises, changing tastes and civic
pride all intersect in an international industry that has
annual revenues of more than $60 billion.
The Art Building is located on Hutchison Drive, about halfway
between the Memorial Union and Mrak Hall on the UC Davis campus.
There is limited parking behind the building, but there is
visitor parking nearby, across the Arboretum in lot VP5.
