Summoning Ghosts : The Art of Hung Liu Hardback
Published to accompany the major retrospective exhibition on Hung Liu, "Summoning Ghosts" is a comprehensive look at the work of this extraordinary Chinese-American artist.
A pioneer in Chinese contemporary art before the Chinese avant-garde came into being, Lui's life spanned two centuries and bridged two totally different economic situations.
The wide-ranging essays in this book, which features 140 color illustrations, reflect on how Hung Liu's evocative art is inextricably bound to her equally rich and complex life.
While considering the artist's primary work as a painter, the contributors also celebrate her murals, permanent and temporary installations, photography, and video.
