Acclaimed Chinese-American artist Hung Liu, whose works are included in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art exhibition Breakthrough: Work by Contemporary Chinese Women Artistsis perhaps best known for her drip-style paintings featuring archival photographs of Chinese people. Liu is to speak about her work in the lecture “Summoning Ghosts” at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 7, 2013, in Kresge Auditorium, Visual Arts Center.

The November 2013 issue of The Asian Art Newspaper contains a two-page spread on the Breakthrough exhibition and artists involved.

“Over the last five years, Bowdoin College has become an increasingly prominent hub for Chinese art,” writes Alexandra Bregman in the article. “Bowdoin first raised awareness in 2011 by hosting The China Institute’s exhibition Along the Yangzi River: Regional Culture of the Bronze Age from Hunan. As the only venue for the exhibition, apart from the Institute in Manhattan, Bowdoin attracted more than 28,000 visitors to the space, ultimately integrating the work with the college’s Asian Studies Department curriculum.”
