Where is the "work" in the "Chinese artwork?" This simple question is the subject of a wide-ranging presentation by Phillip E. Bloom, assistant professor in IU's art history department. Professor Bloom will treat this question from material, iconographic, and socio-historical perspectives. This lecture is in conjunction with the IU Art Museum's current installation East Asia @ Work, on view through December 20.

Light refreshments will follow in the IU Art Museum's Thomas T. Solley Atrium, second floor.
