Decentering Global Modernisms: Critical World Art History between Museum and Academy

This lecture is a methodological analysis of the objects, terms, claims, and narratives of Global Art History, World Art History, and World Art Studies. Drawing insights from Comparative Literature, World Literature and Global Intellectual History, this lecture argues for the importance of critically interrogating our current models, especially the ones used to represent the global in the public sphere, both museologically and pedagogically.

Ming Tiampo is Associate Professor of Art History and Director of the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature Art and Culture at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. She is a scholar of transnational vanguardism with a focus on Japan after 1945. Tiampo’s book Gutai: Decentering Modernism (University of Chicago Press, 2011) received an honorable mention for the Robert Motherwell Book award. In 2013, she was co-curator of the AICA award-winning Gutai: Splendid Playground at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.

In addition to her work on Gutai, Tiampo has published on Japanese modernism, war art in Japan, globalization and art, multiculturalism in Canada, and the connections between Inuit and Japanese prints. In 2013, she co-edited Art and War in Japan and its Empire: 1931-1960 (Brill Academic Press). She is currently working on two books: Decentering Globalism is an interdisciplinary and methodological analysis of World Studies. Paris from the Outside In: Art and Decolonization considers Paris as a site of intersection to investigate the historical conditions of global modernism. Tiampo is a founding member of the Center for Transnational Cultural Analysis at Carleton University.
