Beili Liu: Mining the Material
XianRui Fresharp 2008
de Chinese Culture Foundation of San Francisco
This catalog accompanies the Chinese Culture Center's Xian Rui (Fresh & Sharp) 2008 Artistic Excellence Series exhibition "Lure." The book is a survey of images of artist Beili Liu's work from 2003-2008, complementing her exhibition at the Chinese Culture Foundation of San Francisco in May 2008. The concept behind "Lure" is drawn from the myth of The Red Thread in Chinese legend, in which lovers are connected by an invisible red thread from birth. As time passes they come closer and eventually find each other, regardless of the distance between them, or their social and cultural divides.
