1. Songs of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris
This exhibition is the second in Asia Society's 20th Century Chinese Female Artists Exhibition Series, which aims to shed light on underappreciated and overlooked women artists. Pan Yu-Lin, who lived from 1895—1977, was one of the first Chinese artists to study in Paris, where she ended up settling and overcoming many obstacles—including sexist art critics—to forge a successful career as a painter.
On show in this exhibition are more than 60 paintings—ranging from portraits to nudes to landscapes—that showcase Pan's unique fusion of Chinese and Western painting techniques.
Songs of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris has been supported by the Hong Kong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
Songs of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris runs until January 6, 2019 at Asia Society Hong Kong Center, 9 Justice Drive, Admiralty; +852 2103 9511; asiasociety.org/hong-kong
