MA Asian Art Histories 15th year commemoration


Date & Time

Wed 3 April 2024
7:00pm – 9:00pm


Lecture Theatre, Block F Level 2 #F202, LASALLE




In 2010, LASALLE launched its MA Asian Art Histories programme, the world’s first MA programme to focus on Asian modern and contemporary art histories.

This year, the programme marks its 15th year milestone. Over a hundred students have graduated from the programme, having gone on to make an imprint on the field in their roles as art historians, curators, writers, gallerists and researchers.

This event is as much a celebration of our graduates’ achievements as the marking of a milestone. Two panels will be convened as part of this event, one comprising MA Asian Art Histories alumni and another comprising art historians.
