AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
The 78704 Gallery will debut a new exhibit, “Ten Thousand Folds”, with internationally renowned artist Beili Liu. To celebrate the opening of Liu’s exhibit, 78704 Gallery will be hosting a cocktail party on Thursday June 23, 2016 from 6pm-9pm to kick off the opening to the public. Ten percent of proceeds from any art sold at the reception will go to benefit Austin Child Guidance Center.
Born in Jilin, China, Beili Liu is a multidisciplinary artist whose time and process based installations explore subjects of cultural specificity and overlaps, transient or persistent energy, and conflicting and confluent forces. Liu incorporates simple materials such as; thread, paper, incense, wood, salt, and water, in her works to create microcosms of fragility and poignancy. Similar to her large-scale installation works, Liu also explores inventive processes of mark making in her two dimensional compositions, manipulating various materials to create engaging visual rhythms. The element of surprise and transformation underscores Liu’s deep-rooted appreciation of materiality. For this new exhibition at the 78704 Gallery, Liu will present several series of her two-dimensional works, which the artist refers to as “Process Drawings”.
Liu has received numerous awards and prizes, including a National Endowments for the Arts Grant specifically in support of her residency and solo exhibition “Chine” at the Museum of Southeast Texas. Liu was the lead visual artist for a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation And Collaboration Grant supported public art project “Thirst” at the Lady Bird Lake in Austin Texas. Liu has also received local awards being named "Artist of the Year", by Austin Visual Art Association in 2009 and the Austin Critics Table Awards in 2011. Internationally, Sacchi Review, UK named Liu’s solo exhibition “In Between” one of the “Top Ten Exhibitions in Shanghai” in 2009.
Beili Liu now lives and works in Austin, Texas. She is an Associate Professor of Art at The University of Texas at Austin.
