Hung Liu - Stanford - Women Who Transformed Work in the West

ArtsWest Initiative project – Women Who Transformed Work in the West

Hung Liu has received a lot of great press recently. A particularly well-written article in the Santa Fe New Mexican, Pasatiempo by Grace Parazzoli details lovingly beautiful bits from Hung’s life. One particular detail stands out in Hung’s describing her grandmother’s shoe-making for the family.

The Lily, a publication of The Washington Post, had an article on the project #5WomenArtists by the National Museum of Women on the Arts to name five women artists. NMWA digital editorial associate Emily Haight put Hung Liu with Frido Kahlo, Amy Sherald, Alma Woodsey Thomas,  and Lalla Essaydi.

Recently, an ArtsWest Initiative project sponsored by Stanford University and the Minnesota Street Project published a list “The Most Influential Women Artists of the American West in the 20th Century.” The list included 34 amazing artists including Hung Liu, Ruth Asawa, Kara Walker, and a host of New Mexico women artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Martin, Juane Quick-to-See-Smith, Deborah Butterfield, and others.

A short piece featuring the “Photo of the Day” appeared in the Santa Cruz Sentinal referencing the exhibition “Spoken/Unspoken: Forms of Resistance” at UC Santa Cruz.  The show includes work by Hung Liu, Ruth-Marion Baruch, Irene Carvajal, Jo Hanson, Laura Kina, Yolanda Lopez, Irene Lusztig, and Yoko Ono, along with artifacts about Angela Davis and posters from the Guerrilla Girls.

Coverage also extended to Hung’s Loveland Museum/Gallery installation “Transformation” that included over 200,000 fortune cookies, and a great article in the Albuquerque Journal on Hung’s show with us in March 2018.
