Into View: Bernice Bing at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco
Video (1:00): A teaser about Berenice Bing exhibition. Into View: Bernice Bing celebrates the Asian Art Museum’s acquisition of 20 paintings and works on paper that shine a light on the important lesbian Asian American artist Bernice ‘Bingo’ Bing (1936-1998) who has only recently gained broad recognition for her achievements. The exhibition runs through June 26, 2023.
“These works reveal the evolution of Bing’s remarkable practice, from paintings of the 1950s and 1960s that straddle Abstract Expressionism and figuration to work from the 1980s and 1990s that explores a synthesis of Zen calligraphy and Western abstraction.” – Asian Art Museum
