Collected Letters: An Installation by Liu Jianhua

Asian Art Museum
200 Larkin St.,
San Francisco, California, USA
Mar 17, 2016 To Apr 30, 2017


Detail: With Collected Letters, Liu Jianhua, one of China’s foremost installation artists, has created a thought-provoking work of art that blends the classic and contemporary. Commissioned by the Society for Asian Art for our 50th anniversary, Liu’s striking installation links the building’s past as San Francisco’s Main Library with the museum’s distinctly forward-looking mission. It’s almost as if an old book has been plucked off a shelf and shaken out, its shattered sentences ejected and frozen as art.
