Final Days

Christina Fernandez: Multiple Exposures

Through April 28
Art on Hulfish

Don’t miss this survey of work by Christina Fernandez, a Los Angeles–based artist who has spent more than thirty years conducting a rich exploration of migration, labor, gender, and her Mexican American identity through photography. "Multiple Exposures" refers not only to a photographic technique but also to the artist’s revealing of that which is often hidden away, including fraught racial histories and the mistreatment of vulnerable communities. 




Tang Center Lecture Series

Rethinking Chinese Painting in the Tenth Century with Wu Hung–Landscape Painting

Thursday, April 25, 4:30 p.m.
McCosh 50


The 53 years comprising the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms (907–960 CE) are often considered a transitional phase between the Tang (618–907 CE) and Northern Song (960–1126 CE) dynasties. Based on new archaeological evidence and research, this lecture series suggests that the more-than-100 years from the late ninth to the early eleventh century, a “long tenth century,” witnessed some of the most important changes in Chinese painting.  

More information on the lecture series. 

Organized by the Tang Center for East Asian Art and cosponsored by the Department of Art and Archaeology and the Princeton University Art Museum.
