Listen to art on the radio with ArtBeat, hosted by Kathryn M Davis, every Friday morning from 11 to noon on KVSF, 101.5, the voice of Santa Fe.
This week's podcast features Tonya Turner, co-owner with her husband of Turner Carroll Gallery, with artist Hung Liu, who trained in mural painting at Beijing’s Central Academy during Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Hung’s art can be seen as a critique of the rigidity of state-regulated art, and as a metaphor for memory and history itself. “History is a verb,” she says, dynamic and hardly unilateral. See www.turnercarrollgallery.com for more information on the artist.
