Yu Hong’s practice centers on humane depictions of contemporary life that are both deeply personal and astute in their observations of larger societal realities. This book explores her painting practice across four decades, with an emphasis on her recent work. It includes a major site-specific installation, including a new ten-part cycle of paintings, Walking through Life, 2019–22. This work debuted at the accompanying exhibition, Yu Hong: Another One Bites the Dust–an off-site program of the Asian Art Initiative of the Guggenheim Museum, New York, presented at the Chiesetta della Misericordia of Art Events concurrently with the 60th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia–and is beautifully reproduced in this volume.
