Event description

Description

The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library invites you to attend our closing ceremony of the “Line & Verse: An Exploration of Visual Arts and Poetry, between Canada and Taiwan” Exhibition.

Imagery lies at the core of both visual art and poetry. But the relationship between the two is a complex one that involves vocabulary, interpretation, metaphor, symbolism, formalism and transcendence.

The panel will discuss issues that arise from exploring not just the connection between poetry and art, but also the additional element which the curator, Carlina Chen, has interjected into the exhibition: the enhanced relationship of East to West in these two disciplines.



Some questions that the panellists will grapple with are:

  • How is imagery embedded within the vocabularies of art versus poetry?

  • What are the Eastern and Western traditions that have informed contemporary poetic and artistic expression?

  • Is regionalism or culturally specific knowledge necessary to understand deeply the implications and portent of an artwork or a poem?
