Episode Summary

EDIT
Curator Guy Sorman and Professor Andrew Nathan discuss the only U.S. exhibit of Chinese artist Liu Xia’s work. (3:45) -------- Poet, painter and photographer Liu Xia has been a noteworthy figure on the contemporary Chinese art scene for more than three decades. Today she is better known as a symbol of the Chinese government’s displeasure with her husband Liu Xiaobo, the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner and human rights dissident, who was a visiting scholar at Columbia in 1989 as the pro-democracy movement swept China. Though never charged or convicted, Liu Xia has been under house arrest since her husband was named for the prize and is prohibited from public exhibitions or publishing her work in China.
