A major survey of contemporary artist Hung Liu, whose layered portraits explore history and memory through the stories of marginalized figures​ Hung Liu: Portraits of Promised Lands presents the stunning work of this contemporary Chinese American artist. Liu (b. 1948) blends painting and photography to offer new frameworks for understanding portraiture in relation to time, memory, and history. Often working from photographs, she uses portraiture to elevate overlooked subjects, amplifying the stories of those who have historically been invisible or unheard. This richly illustrated book examines six decades of Liu's painting, photography, and drawing. Author Dorothy Moss illuminates the importance of family photographs in Liu's work; Nancy Lim examines the origins of Liu's artistic practice; Lucy R. Lippard explores issues of identity and multiculturalism; and Elizabeth Partridge focuses on Liu's recent series based on Dorothea Lange's Depression-era photographs. Philip Tinari, along with artists Amy Sherald and Carrie Mae Weems, among others, conveys Liu's impact on contemporary art. Having lived through war, political revolution, exile, and displacement, Liu paints a complex picture of an Asian Pacific American experience. Her portraits speak powerfully to those seeking a better life, in the United States and elsewhere.

Shu-mei Shih inaugurates the field of Sinophone studies in this vanguard excursion into sophisticated cultural criticism situated at the intersections of Chinese studies, Asian American studies, diaspora studies, and transnational studies. Arguing that the visual has become the primary means of mediating identities under global capitalism, Shih examines the production and circulation of images across what she terms the "Sinophone Pacific," which comprises Sinitic-language speaking communities such as the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Chinese America. This groundbreaking work argues that the dispersal of the so-called Chinese peoples across the world needs to be reconceptualized in terms of vibrant or vanishing communities of Sinitic-language cultures rather than of ethnicity and nationality.

Hung Liu is one of the most important Chinese artists working in America today. Born in Changchun in 1948, a year before the founding of the Peopleâe(tm)s Republic of China, Liu experienced the Cultural Revolution first hand, spending four years of proletarian reeducation in the countryside. When she came to the United States in 1984 to attend the University of California, San Diego, she was among the first Mainland Chinese to study abroad and pursue an art career. For over thirty years, she has borne witness in her paintings to the tribulations of everyday people, past and present, and their hidden stories of social injustice. She grapples with issues of self, society, and politicsâe"as well as the challenge of reconciling disparate cultures. Her works fuse deep Asian history and aesthetics with contemporary methods and perception.This book documents her multimedia exhibition at the San Jose, California Museum of Art: Questions from the Sky: New Work by Hung Liu. In this very personal and poignant installation, she contemplated the cycles of life and death and the span of memory. The central work, Silver River, was a 70 foot long mural, intended to be transient and painted over. This book preserves a complex and moving exhibition by one of the greatest artists of our time.
