Reveries: The Art of Hung Liu

The Honolulu Museum of Art
900 South Beretania Street,
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
Aug 18, 2022 To May 28, 2023

Detail: In celebration of the recent acquisitions of three Hung Liu paintings, HoMA will present an exhibition focused on contemporary artist Hung Liu (1948–2021). One of the best-known contemporary Chinese American artists, Liu's paintings and mixed media works reference both East and West and straddle the line between the personal and the political.

Reveries includes the three recent acquisitions of large-scale paintings from the estate of longtime museum supporter Joyce L. Stupski: Temple School (1996), Reverie (1998) and Imperial Pillar (2011). Additionally, seven paintings on loan from the Collection of Ella Qing Hou and J. Sanford Miller, the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer, and Turner Carroll Gallery, Santa Fe, will be on view—all strong examples of Liu’s signature style.

Known for working from historical photographs, Liu drew from China’s long history and her own experiences in order to represent people who had historically been invisible or marginalized.
