Hung Liu Scales of History

This exciting exhibition features Hung’s most recent work inspired by the time and images of the American Dust Bowl, as well as a thoughtful presentation of her work from the 1990s and 2000s, and even earlier works from the  mid-1970s. These earliest paintings are small works of oil on paper, painted sub-rosa as they do not represent authorized images of immediately pre- Cultural Revolution China. Hung refers to the series as her Secret Freedom paintings; a terrible irony as the subject of most of these paintings is the beauty of the countryside, devoid of people.
