August 28, 2023
Chelsea Foxwell, Associate Professor of Art History, East Asian Languages and Civilizations, has been appointed the Director of the Center of East Asian Studies.
Her work focuses on Japan’s artistic interactions with the rest of East Asia and beyond, nihonga and yōga (Japanese oil painting); “export art” and the world’s fairs; practices of image circulation, exhibition, and display; and the relationship between image-making and the kabuki theater.
She is the co-curator, with Bradley Bailey, of the forthcoming exhibition Meiji Modern: Fifty Years of New Japan, which opens at the Asia Society New York on October 3 before traveling to the Smart Museum of Art in Spring 2024.
The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) serves as an interdisciplinary nexus and clearinghouse for East Asian studies and an important resource for faculty and students across the University. CEAS supports academic activities, research, outreach, and public events to promote greater understanding of China, Japan and Korea.
