Speaker for the October 22, 2021 Arts of Asia Lecture

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Dorothy Moss, Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the National Portrait Gallery and Coordinating Curator of the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative, will give the October 22, 2021 Arts of Asia lecture, originally scheduled to be given by contemporary Chinese-born American artist Hung Liu (1948-2021).

Dr. Moss curated the exhibition, Hung Liu: Portraits of Promised Lands, which opened at the National Portrait Gallery mere weeks after the untimely death of Hung Liu. This exhibition is the National Portrait Gallery's first retrospective devoted to an Asian American woman. Come hear Dr. Moss's lecture, titled "Hung Liu's Family Portraits and Their Afterlives," and gain a better understanding of Liu's multilayered paintings, which often amplified the stories of those who have historically been invisible or unheard.

If you didn't sign up for the Fall 2021 Arts of Asia Lecture Series, there is still time to do a late registration. Please email the SAA Office Manager for registration instructions, then catch up on the first four lectures by viewing the videos, available only to registered attendees.

Thank you.
