Enjoy free admission to the "Hung Liu: Transformation Exhibition"
The exhibition Hung Liu: Transformation is the first major Colorado exhibition of the artwork of Hung Liu—one of the most prominent Chinese painters working in the United States today. Featuring 15 large-scale paintings, as well as a rarely seen, room-size installation, the exhibition celebrates the persistent theme in Hung Liu’s artwork of movement and migration, at both literal and metaphoric levels. This body of work emphasizes a symbiotic, fluid relationship with the past and a deeply poignant understanding of the persistence of time. The exhibition explores the evolution of Liu's artistic practice and investigates the complex interactions between individual memory and history. Included in the exhibition are two recent paintings from a 2016 series that were the result of Liu’s long affiliation with and affection for the photographs of Dorothea Lange and other WPA photographers.
This exhibition made possible by a grant from Colorado Creative Industries.
