PASSAGES: Sculpture by Liu Shiming celebrates the art of noted
sculptor, Liu Shiming (1926-2010), in a retrospective of works
covering six decades of artistic inquiry. The Godwin-Ternbach
Museum at Queens College (CUNY), is proud to present the first
exhibition in the borough of this work.
In a career running from 1950 - 2008, PASSAGES brings to light one
of China’s first generation of truly modern sculptors, schooled in
both ancient and traditional Chinese art and restoration techniques,
and at the same time, influenced by Western sculptors such as
Auguste Rodin. Liu’s work successfully married these disparate
“Passages” in the title refers to the artist’s life and art, inextricably
linked throughout his oeuvre. In the exhibition, sixty-two sculptural
works in ceramic, wood, and bronze, along with twelve drawings
demonstrating the artist’s visual practice, will be shown in the
museum’s intimate spaces.
This presentation of PASSAGES : Sculpture by Liu Shiming at the
Godwin-Ternbach Museum represents the first collaboration with
Macaulay Honors College (CUNY), Liu Shiming Art Foundation,
theBlanc Art Space, and Liu Shiming Sculpture Museum. Godwin
-Ternbach Museum is honored to have this opportunity to introduce
Liu Shiming’s works to our community and beyond.
