Hung Liu is one of the most important artists working today. Matthew Harrison Tedford has written a splendid profile of Hung Liu in Art Practical. Covering arts in the Bay Area, Art Practical is running this article in advance of Hung’s talks at the Asian Art Museum, at Mills College, and her solo exhibitions at Mills College, the Oakland Museum of California, and the San Jose Museum of Art. Hung Liu is recognized as America’s most important Chinese artist. Hung Liu: Offerings (on view through March 17) examines the themes of cultural identity through works that navigate the complex journey of immigration and returning home. Trained as a social realist painter and muralist, her paintings, prints, and installations serve as memorials to the past while acknowledging the rapidly changing cultural dynamics in contemporary China.
