Alternative Visions: Liu Dan and Hiromitsu Morimoto

Curated by Alexandra Munroe (for Liu Dan) and Tadayasu Sakai (for Hiromitsu Morimoto)

Gallery at Takashimaya, New York, Tokyo, Yokohama, and Osaka, 1993–94

Alternative Visions was the inaugural exhibition of the Gallery at Takashimaya, New York, for which Munroe presented the ink paintings of Chinese-born artist Liu Dan (b. 1953), who was little-known at the time. It marked one of the first exhibitions to open the field of Chinese painting to consider contemporary experimentation among the post-Liberation generation linking classical and modern aesthetics, medium and techniques.
