Hung Liu: American Exodus presents new work by Hung Liu (Chinese, b. 1948) inspired by the Dustbowl era photographs of Dorothea Lange. Often using photographic references for her paintings, Liu’s shift from Chinese historical photographs to an American period connects conceptually to Liu’s interest in photographs that convey the struggles of those displaced by political or natural forces and the underlying humanity and dignity that pervades.
