Crow Museum of Asian Art presents Beili Liu: "One and Another" opening day
Beili Liu: "One and Another" kicks off an exciting initiative of the Crow Museum, the Texas Asian Women Artists Series, a landmark, three-year series of exhibitions honoring the cultural traditions of Asia with new contemporary voices from Texas women. Beili Liu "One and Another" is not only the inaugural exhibition, but it will be the first major series that the Crow Museum debuts as a university-affiliated museum.
Beili Liu is an Austin-based visual artist and UT-Austin art professor. In her first major exhibition in Dallas, she will present two major works, "Lure/Dallas" and "Each and Every" in Gallery 1 and the Mezzanine, respectively. Additionally, the Museum will host artist performances for "Each and Every" and Artist Talks later this spring.
Working with everyday materials and elements such as thread, scissors, paper, stone, fire and water, Liu manipulates their intrinsic qualities to extrapolate complex cultural narratives that reflect not only her Chinese cultural heritage and personal experiences but the societal traumas associated with migration and diaspora.
Her work has been exhibited in Asia, Europe and across the United States, and she has held numerous solo exhibitions at internationally renowned venues.
