Hung Liu and her work on paper are the subjects of a new solo exhibition opening 19 January 2018 at the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. According to the museum web site “Hung Liu In Print invites viewers to explore the relationship between the artist’s multi-layered paintings and the palpable, physical qualities of her works on paper…Best known as a painter, Liu ably translates the “weeping realism” that characterizes her canvases into the medium of prints. This focus exhibition highlights selected prints from the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts as well as the artist’s related tapestry designs.” The exhibition runs from 19 January through 8 July 2018.
There are two great articles on the exhibition. A fabulous piece in January 26, 2018 The Georgetown Voice by writer Nancy Garrett uncovers and elevates “the most frequently ignored figures in Chinese history: women.” Also, the article in the New York Times by Peter Libbey has Hung on the same page as Barack Obama and his official portrait by Kehinde Wiley.
