Multi-Village Art Introspection – Art of Hung Liu

Monday, May 23rd

12:00 pm

On May 23 we will discuss and view the art of Hung Liu, who on her first trip back to China in 1991 discovered a cache of 19th and early 20th Century commercial-studio photographs portraying various Chinese female types prominent in pre-revolutionary China. Fascinated by the shifting meanings that result when a historical photograph is separated from its original context, Liu began incorporating such imagery into her paintings.
