Professor Susan Huang's Chinese Art and Visual Culture class enjoyed a tour by Bradley Bailey, the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Curator of Asian Art, who introduced the students to the Asian art collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Dr. Bailey has curated exhibitions on Japanese American and contemporary art at the Mead Art Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery, and Recession Art in New York. He organized two special exhibitions of Japanese art, Extended Remix: Contemporary Artists Meet the Japanese Print (2016), and Flash of Light, Fog of War: Prints of the Japanese Military 1894–1905 (2017), at the Ackland Art Museum. Dr. Bailey also led the groundbreaking reorganization and reinstallation of the Ackland Art Museum’s galleries of Asian art, which include Indian painting and sculpture, Chinese ceramics, Korean pottery, and Japanese metalwork, highlighted by the exhibition Color Across Asia (2016).
