Summoning Ghosts: The Art of Hung Liu

The exhibition Summoning Ghosts: The Art of Hung Liu is the first comprehensive survey of the artwork of Hung Liu-one of the most prominent Chinese painters working in the United States today. Featuring approximately 80 paintings, as well as personal ephemera such as photographs, sketch books, and informal painting studies from private and public collections around the world, the exhibition celebrates Liu's career accomplishments and includes work completed in China before the artist arrived in the U.S. The exhibition explores the evolution of Liu's artistic practice, and investigates the complex interactions between individual memory and history, and documentary evidence and artistic expression, among other themes.
