Oakland Museum Celebrates Women History Month
Honors Hung Liu and Others
March is Women’s History Month, and the Oakland Museum is excited to celebrate some of their favorite female artists from their collection. Explore the art of these inspiring individuals, as well as the works of many others on their collections site.
Hung Liu is known for paintings based on historical Chinese photographs, which often challenge the documentary authority of history and uncover cultural and personal narratives. Liu is a two time recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in painting. A retrospective of her work, Summoning Ghosts: The Art of Hung Liu, was organized in 2013 by the Oakland Museum of California, and toured nationally.
