We just returned from a fabulous visit to Vienna. Visits to the MUMOK, Kunsthistoriches Museum, Akademie der Bildenden Künste, the Leopold Museum and the Upper Belvedere were capped by the opening for the exhibition GOLD. This comprehensive examination of the use of gold in artwork from Tiepolo to contemporary time featured a work by Hung Liu. Both the preview and the opening were packed with patrons filling the rooms of the former palace; rooms that were by themselves awash in gold. The exhibition runs through June 2012.
