USC Pacific Asia Museum reopens to the public with free admission from December 8-17 in celebration of the Grand Reopening.
By Vahe Simonyan
The museum inaugural special exhibition will be ‘Winds from Fusang: Mexico and China in the Twentieth Century‘, a major exhibition on the heretofore unexamined influence of Mexican art and artists on the development of art in China in the twentieth century. The exhibition, its accompanying publication, and dynamic public programs will present the trans-Pacific ties between the creative communities of Mexico and China in the last century.
Exhibition co-curator Shengtian Zheng, a leading scholar and independent curator, said:
Many believe the Western influence since the ‘opening of China’ in the late 1980s is the motivating force of Chinese contemporary art. Very few acknowledge other influences occurring prior to the Cultural Revolution, especially during the mid-twentieth century when China was isolated from the outside world.
The exhibition is co-curated by USC Pacific Asia Museum Director Christina Yu Yu. It’s presented as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
USC PAM hours are: Wednesday – Sunday: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Thursdays: 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. (Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Free admission: Dec. 8 to Dec. 17.
